Many thanks to readers Scott, Jason, Kristen and Josh who sent along information about the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) plans to seek a developer to build “a substantial mixed-use joint development project” on the property surrounding the Brookland/CUA Metro station. Back in March we got wind that this development would be underway at some point, and this WMATA Solicitation, released on November 4th, confirms this. The type of development WMATA is seeking is high density, walkable and transit-oriented, described in the solicitation as: “multifamily housing…and office space…The housing may be rental, ownership or a combination of both. Density should be maximized. ” In total, WMATA expects the development to provide 215 – 250 residential units, and include street-level retail an/or transit oriented businesses. The deadline for developers to submit their proposals is March 7th. We will keep you updated when we learn anything new.
