Metro Twinbrook stop has troubled parking garage

Silver Spring’s Transit Center isn’t the only Metro property with construction troubles.

A roughly 400-space parking garage at the Twinbrook Metro station has “extensive cracks,” according to documents that will be presented Thursday to Metro’s board of directors as part of its monthly planning and real estate committee meeting.

The garage is part of a redevelopment that JBG Cos. of Chevy Chase is overseeing. The project eventually will include 1,000 apartments and condos, 325,000 square feet of office space, and 158,000 square feet of retail space.

According to the documents, it has been delayed because “Metro has not been willing to accept” the parking garage.

The contractor on the project — Coakley & Williams — is “prepared to make repairs and warranty its work for the next 10 years,” according to the documents.

The committee is expected to decide Thursday whether to extend the closing date on the project with JBG until the end of June.
