SILVER SPRING - The roof of the English castle has caved in, the blue paint of the Dutch windmill is flaking and two of the marble horses in the Italian fountain are headless on the deserted campus where the daughters of Washington's elite once strolled. The pagoda is in better shape, however, and there's hope it could become someone's home. The villa could become condominiums. Still splendid in ruins, the fanciful buildings of the Seminary at Forest Glen, a former girls finishing school, could have a bright future as housing, preservationists believe.

SILVER SPRING - Two dozen historic buildings at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center are in such disrepair that the Pentagon is considering ripping down or selling the structures.The Forest Glen Annex buildings, which served as a women's finishing school from the late 19th century until World War II, go largely unused and are too expensive to maintain, Army officials say.But preservationists blame the Army for the state of the buildings, which have been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1972.

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority marked the opening of its 3.2-mile Metrorail Red Line expansion yesterday with a carnival-like ceremony in Wheaton at the landing of "the longest escalator in the free world."Hundreds of balloon-toting onlookers snatched up free round-trip passes and marveled at the 230-foot escalator.Officials said it is the longest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere and -- worldwide -- second only to Leningrad's. It takes an estimated 2 1/2 minutes to descend.

James Rouse, the founder of Howard County's Columbia, often reminded folks not to forget that the bottom line of his renowned planned city was to make a profit.It was a caveat offered in recognition of the fact that so many looked upon the community solely as some grand social experiment due to its emphasis on economic and racial diversity. Because his work often embodied the social aspects of urban planning, Mr. Rouse found himself having to remind people that his company was, after all, in the development business.

Just how pricey can Columbia get?A new luxury housing development there called Forest Glen will reach the limits of the region's residential real estate market. Home prices will range between $600,000 and $1 million -- three to five times greater than the $203,621 median price of a new detached home in Howard County."It's golden," said Louis Siegel, whose Owings Mills firm is joining the Rouse Co., Columbia's developer, to break ground today on the project.The 70-acre project is further evidence of the growing concentration of wealth in the Baltimore-Washington corridor -- and especially in Columbia -- economic development officials say.Howard County -- which, according to the 1990 Census has the second-highest median family income in the state, $54,348, and the sixth-highest in the nation -- is fast attracting wealthy homebuyers out of the Washington market, said Richard E. Story, director of Howard County's Economic Development Authority.

A new, exclusive enclave is being carved out of the woods of Howard County, shielded by a golf course and a 1,000-acre nature preserve. It is drawing national attention and will set the standard for turn-of-the-century glitz in solidly middle-class Columbia.The Estates at Forest Glen is a relatively small subdivision by Columbia standards. Only 30 building lots will be sold. But many of the homes will be priced well over $1 million. Contracts on five homes that are either under construction or close to beginning are averaging around $900,000, according to Louis Siegel, an executive of Siegel Homes, builder of the luxury subdivision.
