Famed 'Deep Throat' Parking Garage Coming Down

The parking garage where Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward met with Watergate source Deep Throat is to be demolished to make room for new apartment and commercial structures.

The garage lies beneath two buildings that are coming down at a site in, Va.,  USA Today reported. Over the weekend, the Arlington County Board voted unanimously to replace the buildings with a 24-story commercial building and a 28-story apartment tower.

The plans to demolish the buildings became public almost a year ago, The Washington Post reported.

According to the property developer for the new project, the designs will take two more years to complete and demolition will not start before January 2017.

The Mark Felt met in the garage with Woodward to provide him with information about the break-ins at the Watergate complex, a scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974.

Felt was the second-highest official in the FBI at the time, and his true identity was one of the nation's longest-enduring secrets until the former agent ended the mystery in 2005 by confirming he was Deep Throat.

For the meetings with Woodward, Felt parked at spot inside the parking garage. The Post received a Pulitzer Prize for public service in 1973 for its Watergate coverage.

Monday Properties, the company developing the property, plans to put a marker on the site to note its historical significance. A plaque on the street currently marks the spot.
