WMATA to open new parking structure, advance transit-oriented development


The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) plans to open a new 426-space parking garage at Twinbrook Station on Oct. 7.

Built by JBG as part of a joint development project, the new Metro West Garage will replace parking for an existing surface lot that will be used for retail, residential and office space, WMATA officials said in a press release.

"We also look forward to the future phases of the mixed-use, transit-oriented development that is coming to  the Twinbrook Station, which when complete will further improve mobility and connect communities in Montgomery County," said Patrick Schmitt, WMATA's director of parking.

Construction began earlier this week on the second phase of the joint development project, which will include 206 apartments and 33,000 square feet of retail shops.
