Mixed use above a mass transit station

By: Jonathan Groner
In early 2007, retailers will be able to lease space in Park Place, a mixed-use development in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Park Place is located directly on top of the Georgia Avenue Petworth station of the city's Metro transit system, part of the Green Line.

The area is rapidly gentrifying, and the new development is following young urban professionals north, as closer-in areas like Dupont Circle and Columbia Heights are becoming quite expensive. The corner of Georgia and New Hampshire avenues, where the building is located, is the commercial center of the Petworth area. Park Place is the first new residential building on Georgia Avenue in the District in decades. Residents will be able to live, shop, and begin their commutes to work, right there in the building.

The development will have 148 condominium apartments and 18,000 square feet of retail space.
