Arts District Hyattsville got a glowing write-up in the Washington Post today.
An article in the paper’s real estate section, which calls the townhomes being built by EYA and Pulte “attractive and affordable,” features a couple who moved from Arlington:
While expecting their first child, Edgar and Marcia Garcia decided to sell their one-bedroom condominium in Arlington and move to a bigger place. They looked at houses in Northern Virginia, Montgomery County and even Columbia, Md., only to be faced with sticker shock. “The prices were out of control,” recalls Edgar Garcia, 35.
The couple eventually settled in the Arts District Hyattsville, a new community of homes, apartments and retail about two miles from the District in Prince George’s County. …
“The Arts District is still up-and-
coming, and prices aren’t as expensive as in more established neighborhoods,” says Garcia, who paid $364,000 for a three-
bedroom Pulte townhouse. “We like being able to walk to shops and the supermarket.”
The story notes that there are just 30 Pulte and 14 EYA homes still available, with construction finishing in the development by December.
