Greenbelt

Station Area Vision



This center features a distinct, integrated and inviting mixed-use community of retail, office, entertainment and residential uses that achieve a high-intensity 24-hour environment, while preserving and protecting two major tributaries of the Anacostia River. The plan calls for improved access to the Capital Beltway, two mixed-use developments in the core area, and a transit village with distinct neighborhoods based on neo-traditional planning concepts.
