On Thursday afternoon, the Prince George’s County Planning Board granted preliminary approval to The Riverfront at West Hyattsville, a 183-townhouse and 300-apartment development planned for 18.45 acres of land abutting the West Hyattsville Metro station. Over 9,000 square feet of retail will also be delivered along Ager Road.
There is currently a 250,000 square-foot vacant warehouse on the site at 5620 Ager Road (map); this will be demolished and a modified street grid will be created. The townhouses will be located toward the western side of the site, while the apartments will be spread across two buildings straddling the tunnel where the rail lines bisect the site underground.
The project will also create 4.5 acres of public parkland with an amphitheater and improve bicycle and pedestrian access to both the neighboring Kirkwood community and the Anacostia River NW Branch Trail. Two Capital Bikeshare stations will be installed at the site.
Gilbane Development Company is teaming up with an architectural firm to design the townhouses, which will have rear garage access and will be grouped in blocks of six and eight. The townhouse portion of the development is expected to begin construction this spring and start selling dwellings by the end of the year.
The Washington Business Journal reports that the apartments are expected to break ground in the second quarter of 2018.
