About the Project

The multi-phased New Carrollton Joint Development project will create mixed-use development to establish the New Carrollton Metrorail Station as a leading transit hub in the National Capital Region. The New Carrollton Joint Development Project is part of Metro’s Capital Improvement Program.


In the early 2000s, Metro and Prince George’s County embraced a unified vision to transform New Carrollton Metrorail Station into a regional transit hub. By 2015, Metro and New Carrollton JV, LLC entered into a development agreement to develop Metro-owned property at the New Carrollton Metrorail Station in New Carrollton, Maryland.

The project is occurring along the east side of the New Carrollton Metrorail Station.
