Things looking up in D.C.
WASHINGTON (AP) - November 19, 2013 (WPVI) -- Things could be looking up in D-C.
The nation's capital has a height limit on buildings that's more than a century old.
That means there are no skyscrapers in Washington like many other major cities.
A planning commission is set to recommend that Congress ease the restrictions.
But D-C won't look like Manhattan.
The report advises the height limit remain in place for downtown and the National Mall area, where many of the monuments are located.
