Sheridan Station Taking Shape

Have you noticed the massive dirt hill / construction site just past the Anacostia Metro station along Sheridan Road? Once home to failed housing projects, the site is fast transforming into Sheridan Station: an assortment of brand new, mixed-income apartments and townhouses - with some offices space as well. In total, there will be 344 new housing units.


the utility lines are conveniently not shown in the rendering below


there will be office space on the ground floor (dentist offices, etc)

Adjacent the multi-family rental shown above will be the townhouses, 165 of which will be for-sale units.





Sheridan Station is the first of two major HOPE VI "housing projects to mixed-income neighborhoods" programs in the vicinity of Anacostia. The other, Barry Farm/Park Chester, has not yet begun demolition and construction.

Thank you for posting these pics. I used to walk down this street everyday and hoped that something would be developed here. Now it's happening!

Just pray these folks can have this big, wonderful thing coming their way,..and that the wrong people don't turn this into a SEWER for them. Everyone just wants someplace decent to live and raise their damn kids.

it's a shame that those utility lines aren't being buried, especially now when it would be less disruptive while other construction is underway.

It's going to be messed up, just lime the rest. I see there's already 65 spaces award to Berry Farms residents. Translation section 8! When will people learn, guess i'll be moving out the district afterall!

I was following a link for the townhomes and looking at the site plan and saw Sheridan Apts smack in the middle. It's generally not a good idea to have renters so close to homeowners. Still I clicked on Sheridan Sq site and saw the rents and knew it would be even worse.

I feel for anyone who buys into these homes. They are going to lose a bundle.

msubear77: Can you cite some facts regarding your comment about renters proximity to homeowners?

So homeowners in Cleveland Park are somehow at a disadvantage because of the apartment buildings on Connecticut Avenue?

You should never combine a development of renters and buyers. I have seen this done before and the buyers lose a lot of equity in their homes. It would be a total waste to invest you hard earned money into something like this.
