THE METRO STATIONS OF GREEN LINE NORTH (Cont)|
...Northeast of Columbia Heights, the Green Line runs under New Hampshire Avenue, and crosses under a sadly depressed Georgia Avenue in the Petworth neighborhood. The Metro station here is shown up Georgia Ave (lower left) and across from a Metro Bus station at New Hampshire Avenue (lower right). It is only two blocks from the large, underutilized Old Soldiers Home property currently raising money by offering some 49 acres of its land to Catholic University, or the highest bidder. The last station in DC is at Fort Totten where the upper platform of the Red Line to Silver Spring (upper left) crosses over the Green Line on the lower platform (upper right) as it emerges from underground. From here the Green Line reaches East into Maryland via West Hyattsville, Prince George's Plaza, College Park (University of Maryland) and Greenbelt--all modest income, but growing suburbs. The Fort Totten station area is one of the few sites in the city zoned for medium/high density residential and growth industry uses (Metro shares the main railroad right of way here). At the present time, there is virtually no revenue production at this extremely attractive location.
NARPAC, Inc. believes this Green Line North corridor should generate thousands of taxpayer's homes and tens of thousands of upscale jobs within a decade.
