High-end apartments inside a renovated office building at University Town Center are now pre-leasing.
The Highline apartments will be located at 3700 East West Highway in the 10-story Metro II building, first constructed in 1968 as part of an effort to create a “Rockefeller Center in the countryside.”
While the exterior, designed by the same architect as the Kennedy Center, remains the same, the interior has been dramatically refashioned.
The building will have co-working spaces with phone, internet and desks that can accommodate up to six people; a sound-proofed “Rockstar Room” for rehearsals; a “Moroccan Sunroom” to get light on rainy days; a “Makers Space;” and Amazon lockers for easy pickup, along with a bike room, a fitness center and a pet spa.
“Whether you want to create a new podcast or record a track, make crafts with other residents, or soak up the sun in Moroccan style, our Hyattsville apartments offer practicality, imagination, and comfort,” the apartment website notes.
Apartments come with a washer and dryer, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, large closets and a keyless entry system. Floor plans range from a 636-square-foot studio to a 1,719-square-foot three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment. Prices range from $1,400 to $3,100.
The biggest selling point may be location, however. The apartments are next to a movie theater, new Safeway and several restaurants and a short walk from the Prince George’s Plaza Metro station.
