‘Deep Throat garage’ will be torn down

WASHINGTON — One of the most historic journalism sites of the past half-century will soon be demolished.

The Arlington County Board voted Saturday to demolish the building and parking garage where FBI official Mark Felt secretly met with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward during the Watergate investigation.

The old building and garage will be replaced with a 28-story residential tower and a 24-story commercial building.

The county will save the historical marker it erected in 2011, and the landowner has pledged to create a commemorative memorial of the events that occurred there.
