Groundbreaking ceremony held for new Md. mixed-use apartment, townhome community | WJLA

Groundbreaking ceremony held for new Md. mixed-use apartment, townhome community

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday for a new mixed-use apartment and townhome community in Hyattsville, Maryland.
The event took place at the Riverfront at West Hyattsville Metro. Councilmember Deni Taveras and Hyattsville Mayor Candace Hollingsworth were a few of the speakers at the ceremony.
This new development features 183 homes and 300 apartment homes and will include 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail and a creation of a 4.5 acre community park recreation area.
ABC7 News' Brad Bell has more on this story in the above video.

I hope more things open up around there but I know it will be hard since they're off the beaten path. I think the architectural salvage store on Baltimore Ave. needs to move and looked around there but the rent is apparently high. Seems like the owners would rather the storefronts stay empty. I hope that old Main Street can attract some non-chain restaurants and businesses.

Riverdale Park Station will add some traffic. THe two will be connected by bike trails and the bridge once completed. ALso, if MARC increases the frequency of service, there could be more foot traffic for those taking MARC.

The area is adding like 1000+ new units over the next 5 years. People are bound to discover Riverdale Town Center.

Nice to hear about this, that development sounds awesome. On a side note I actually like the graffiti on that warehouse.

3700 East-West Highway is being converted to apartments. But not just any apartments. Apparently, they will be student housing?



DSP that illustrates the floorplans.

Where did you see student housing? Also it's too bad they're not really updating the facade. It's hideous. I think this is part of MDs push to get students out of the neighborhoods and into student housing which isnt a terrible thing. It'll be good for those businesses.

The floorplans in the DSP show the rooms are small enough for two beds, a common area, and a bathroom. The labels also indicate one and two beds, not bedrooms. Unless I'm looking at it wrong? JUst looks like a student housing type layout with bike storage and common laundry rooms, etc.


PS. It looks better than most of the 50s era office buildings. lol And it is designed after the Kennedy Center by the same architect. I think it looks more European than anything. But not like the new office/apartment designs we've seen in the last 20 years. THere have been some articles on suburban office building being retrofitted to apartments. It is a way to revive dead office parks.

As long as DC is expensive to live in, the apartments will be filled. As far these apartments are concerned, I think the developers saw the success of the student housing already at UTC. I imagine this building will be for all DC area colleges like the other one as UMD in college Park is close to a student housing glut situation. The recent opening of Terrapin Row added a lot more student beds. I'd be surprised if there is another new student housing project constructed in Hyattsville or College Park in the next few years. It is time for market rate professional apartments to be built now.

Streetcar 82 Brewing Co. Signs Lease
Posted on August 1, 2017 by Ryan Teague Beckwith
Streetcar 82 Brewing Hyattsville brewery microbrew craft beer

A Belgian-inspired brewery is coming to Hyattsville.

Streetcar 82 Brewing Co. just announced it has signed a lease on a building up the street from Pizzeria Paradiso.

The space at 4824 Rhode Island is a former auto garage and it comes with two beautiful garage doors that open up and provide great indoor/outdoor brewing space. We’re looking forward to joining the growing community of makers and creatives in Hyattsville.

The brewery, which gets its name from the streetcar line that used to run up Rhode Island Avenue, was started by Gallaudet University graduates Jon Cetrano, Mark Burke and Sam Costner, who had returned to the D.C. area after working in other parts of the country.

On their website, the three say they chose Hyattsville because of the sense of community.

“We have the support of a large Deaf community, each of our neighborhoods (Eckington, Woodridge, and Hyattsville) has a unique, distinctive identity, and small town feel,” they wrote.

They’re living up to that promise already. They’ve brewed a Belgian Blond Ale with honey from the town’s own Hope Honey Farm and held a “Bikes and Beer” event with Arrow Bicycle just up the road.

Streetcar 82 is selling t-shirts with their logo (by Andres Otalora, a deaf graphic designer, and Route 66, a deaf-owned design and apparel company) on their website.
