Metro is in talks with the District to sell a vacant parcel at the Anacostia Metro station for redevelopment as affordable housing.
The Metro board’s real estate committee on Thursday is expected to approve the sale of nine lots totaling 27,031 square feet to the Department of Housing and Community Development for $1.5 million.
The lots are located at the northeast corner of Shannon Place and Howard Road SE, across the street from the Anacostia Metro Station and adjacent to the proposed terminus of the Anacostia streetcar line.
According to a Metro report, DHCD plans to offer the site to the private sector for the construction of affordable housing. The agency has received a federal grant to buy the site.
