Riverfront at West Hyattsville

Project Description

In 2015, Hogan Companies and Gilbane Development proposed to develop a 25.3 acre parcel immediately northwest of the West Hyattsville Metro Station as a multifamily unit and townhouse development. The most recent conceptual plan includes 300-400 apartment units, 183 townhouses, and 10,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. The concept plan proposes a public park and amphitheater, improvements to the Northwest Branch Trail and several connections of the property to the Metro station.

Phase I - Townhouses

The project will be split into two phases; the townhouse component and the multifamily building. Representatives for the developer first presented their vision for Phase I to the community at a public meeting in October 2015. They followed up with the Hyattsville City Council in October 2016, showing a modified plan as a result of resident feedback. In March 2017, the developer received approval by Prince George's County for the Preliminary Plan of Subdivision and Detailed Site Plan Infrastructure Plan to construct 183 townhouses. Approved project documents can be found here.

The architectural detailed site plan (DSP) for the townhouse portion of development was presented to the City Council in May 2018. The City Council voted to support the application on July 16, 2018, and the project was subsequently approved by the Prince George's County Planning Board on July 19, 2018.

The official groundbreaking event for the property was held in July 2017. As of January 2018, the vacant warehouse on the property has been demolished and the team is now starting ground work on the site.  Ground work is estimated to be completed by the close of 2018, at which point construction of the townhomes will begin. The applicant anticipates delivering an initial round of townhouse units in early 2020, with the balance of townhouse units being completed by the end of 2020.

Phase 2 - Multifamily Building

The second phase of the Riverfront at West Hyattsville project will include construction of two to three multifamily buildings, including one along Ager Road. The proposed residential dwelling unit count has not been determined.  The applicant anticipates submitting a Preliminary Plan of Subplans for the multi-family buildings in late 2019 or early 2020.
