Takoma Metro Station Development

About Takoma Metro Station Development

A proposal for a new mix-use development on the 6.4-acre parcel next to the Takoma Metro station is going through DC’s development review process. The project, named Takoma Station, is a joint development between the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and the development firm, EYA. The proposed project would add new affordable and market-rate residential units, ground-floor retail, public green space, a pedestrian plaza, and new, metered on-site parking.

The project is fully within DC’s jurisdiction and development review process. Takoma Park residents may submit comments on the project prior to or during upcoming public hearings.

City staff developed a memo to Takoma Park City Council on April 26, 2023, outlining the staff position on the development. Since that time, the Comprehensive Transportation Review has been released.
