    DC: New Carrollton Metrorail Station Southside Joint Development Project

    Metro is seeking feedback on the removal of Park & Ride lot 3 and the expansion of the bus loop and Kiss & Ride area at the New Carrollton Metrorail station for a joint development project.

    About the Project
    Metro is considering the redevelopment of Park & Ride lot 3 on the south side of the New Carrollton Metrorail station into a new office building and multifamily residential building with ground floor retail.

    The proposed project concept by a private developer is anticipated to include:

    • Approximately 200,000 sq feet of office space
    • Approximately 250,000 sq feet of multifamily residential space
    • Approximately 20,000 sq feet of ground floor retail space
    • Parking garage for office and residential use, with approximately 100-300 spaces for Metrorail commuters
    • Expansion and upgraded design to the current bus loop
    • Expansion of current Kiss & Ride
    • Improved roadways to accommodate increased traffic flow

    To implement this joint development project, the Park & Ride lot 3 would be eliminated and there would be some reconfiguration of Park & Ride lot 2. ……………..(more)
