The major thoroughfares around the College Park Metro station may soon look drastically different.
WMATA announced on Tuesday a partnership with Gilbane Development Company that would deliver 440 market-rate apartments atop retail on the current site of the Park and Ride surface lot off River Road (map) near the station. A one-acre landscaped village green would also be created on the site. WDG Architecture is the designer on the project. The deal between Metro and Gilbane paves the way for site plans to be finalized with Prince George's County.
The mixed-use development is part of University of Maryland's Discovery District project to revitalize the area surrounding the Metro station, connecting more-bustling Baltimore Avenue to the sparse academic and research corridor along River Road.
Last fall, the Maryland-National Capital Parks and Planning Commission approved a mixed-use development just blocks away on the 5.75-acre parcel at Baltimore Avenue and Guilford Road that will deliver 393 apartments and 81,706 square feet of commercial space.
