    There is on-street parking in the vicinity. Most nearby garages close at 7 (including the garage under the building), but there is a garage on 15th St between L & M that is open until 11:30PM. Your bigger concern is downtown traffic during rush hour. The Comcast office is convenient to Farragut West or Farragut North -- if Metro is an option, it's probably your best bet.

    curious about the parking situation. will we be able to park somewhere close by or in the building? or should we just take the metro in to the city?
