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 latest conceptual plan proposes 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 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 project is estimated to be complete in 2020.
Phase 2 - Multifamily Building
Phase 2 of the project will involve the construction of the multifamily building on the portion of the site fronting Ager Road. The applicant is likely to bring forth their plans for Phase 2 in Winter/Spring 2019.
