    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)

    1. Kiss & Ride?

    That’s a new one on me. I’m guessing it’s not as exciting as it sounds.

    "Slavery followed, even voluntary slavery; the weak eagerly submitted to the strong, on condition that the latter aided them to subdue the still weaker. Then there were saints who came to these people, weeping, and talked to them of their pride, of their loss of harmony and due proportion, of their loss of shame. They were laughed at or pelted with stones." - Dostoevsky, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man
