With all the residential and commercial projects sprouting up, Hyattsville Patch thought we'd take a look at what kinds of companies have come into the city to develop these kinds of things.
EYA Arts District Hyattsville: Bethesda-based EYA has had a hand in many projects around the metro region. In 18 years the developer has built more than 3,000 homes in the cities of Alexandria and Washington D.C., and in Arlington, Montgomery, Prince George's, and Fairfax counties.
In Hyattsville EYA has Arts District Hyattsville along Route 1. West Village features townhomes with rooftop terraces, garage parking, onsite shops, art galleries, studios, a fitness center and streetscapes. East Village is now being built out, to include townhomes and a variety of retail shops, including a Yes! Organic Market, Busboys and Poets, Elevation Burger, Chipotle, and a Tara Thai restaurant.
University Town Center: Developer Herschel Blumberg has watched the evolution of this town center since the 1960s.
University Town Center is a multi-billion dollar mixed-use hub featuring 1.4 million square feet of office space. Tenants include the National Center for Health Statistics, Kaiser Permanente, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the U.S. Department of Labor. The development also includes a 16-story, 910 bed student building housing students from area universities.
It now also includes a 242,000 square-foot plaza with a concert area and retailers including restaurants like Five Guys, Three Brothers, Qdoba, Hank's and Carolina Kitchen. It's also home to a 14-screen movie theater.
Mosaic at Metro: The Equity Residential development consists of 260 luxury apartments in 37 different floor plans and range from 411 to 1,490 square feet. According to Wikipedia, the company owns more than 550 apartment communities in 23 states and the District.
Mosaic at Metro, which is situated just southeast of the Prince George's Metro station, is in walking distance to Starbucks, CVS and across the street from the Mall at Prince George's.
Metro Shoppes: This retail area was developed by Bethesda-based Taylor Development & Land Company. It includes a Staples store, a Bally Total Fitness center, a Dunkin Donuts store, armed forces recruitment centers, hair design outlets and space for other retailers.
