Plans to build 440 apartments next to College Park Metro Station are taking shape as the project moves through the final development review process. And, well, let’s just say it’s a long building.
The project is part of a concerted effort by Metro to develop the land around its stations into mixed-use activity zones. The hope is such density will foster increased ridership. The project is being developed by Gilbane Development Co., a Rhode Island-based real-estate investment firm.
Designs call for a 650-foot wide structure to accomodate the 440 units planned for the site. The plans call for a five-story, 440-unit apartment building with 13,00 square-feet of commercial space.
