A Washington Post story that posted tonight notes that Hyattsville is the epicenter of a real-estate boom in Prince George’s County:
In most cities, job growth and development are concentrated in what Leinberger calls the “favored corridor.” For decades in Washington, the favored corridor was northwest in the city and beyond. In the 1990s, it pushed into Fairfax and Loudoun counties; urban development sprang up around the west branch of the Red and Orange lines. Now it’s the Green Line’s turn.
‘The Green Line is where much of the focus of new activity is,’ he said. ‘One could say the Green Line is the new Red Line.'”
