New Carrollton: Come and Get It

With three transit stations nearby and ready-made commuters, this DC/Maryland suburb is ripe for development.

"'New Carrollton is, we believe, the premiere development opportunity in the United States.' [Steven Goldin, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority] said. 'Not only the premiere TOD (transit-oriented development) opportunity, the premiere opportunity. You've got an Amtrak stop, a Metro stop, a MARC stop. The GSA [General Services Administration] already has a huge footprint out there with the IRS building, so obviously it's a location that the GSA knows and is comfortable with. And you've got a jurisdictional government that wants to see development there. So we expect a national response.'"
