HYATTSVILLE WIRE: An artsy new apartment building is coming to the area around the West Hyattsville Metro station.
Gilbane Development Co. is planning a five-story building with first-floor retail space and a parking garage that would open in the fall of 2024.
The Sovren Apartments would range from studios to three bedrooms, with 147 of the 293 apartments reserved for people making 80% of the area medium income or less — which is currently $103,200 for a family of four.
The affordable housing component is being paid for through loans from the Prince George’s County Housing Investment Trust Fund and Amazon’s Housing Equity Fund, which is also helping finance the Atworth apartments near the College Park Metro station.
There would be about 2,500 square feet of retail space and 298 spaces in the garage, which will have a colorful mural on the exterior.
The apartments are part of the broader Riverfront at West Hyattsville development, which includes townhomes and other retail space.
