Address

2700 Hamilton St.
Hyattsville, MD 20782

Location

  • 27.5 ± acre (Metro property)
  • The West Hyattsville site is located in Hyattsville, Prince George’s County, Maryland northwest of Queens Chapel Road, between Ager Road and Chillum Road at the intersection of Agar Road and Hamilton Street
  • Immediate access to the site is provided by Ager Road, a four-lane north-south road. It extends from Queens Chapel Road to Route 410/East-West Highway which, in turn, connects the site to employment and retail centers in Silver Spring, Bethesda and other Montgomery County locations. Queens Chapel Road, which forms the site’s southern boundary, connects the site to the District of Columbia to the southwest. With close proximity to the University of Maryland to the northeast and Catholic University and Howard University to the southwest, the site has the potential to become an academic and bohemian Mecca. Hyattsville received a $70-million Gateway Arts District grant which stimulated the development of art studios, galleries, and subsidized housing for artists.
  • 22 minutes via Metrorail to Metro Center in downtown District of Columbia

Project

History

Metro, Centex Real Estate Corporation and Gunston Hall Realty, Inc. signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement in 2005. In 2008 the development Conceptual Site Plan was approved by the Prince George County Planning Board. Centex merged with Pulte Home Company in 2009 and the Purchase and Sale Agreement was terminated per agreement among the parties.

Project Vision

Below is a possible development vision (which includes adjacent land not part of the Metro property) based on a previously proposed project around the West Hyattsville Metrorail station

  • Commercial: 200,000 square feet
  • Retail: 65,000 square feet
  • Residential: 789 units

The project vision is a new transit-oriented, mixed-use community that incorporates a variety of town homes, condominiums, office, significant retail, public open spaces as well as major Metro improvements. The project will create a pedestrian-friendly community which will interface with the existing surrounding neighborhoods. The projected will be bisected by the Metrorail station thereby forming two development areas.


Metro Facilities

Structures on the site include: the elevated Green Line tracks, which divide the site in two, the West Hyattsville Metrorail station and related WMATA facilities, a 453-space park and ride parking lot, a 110-space metered surface parking lot, bus bays and access roads.
