Few transit hubs include all the options that commuters and travelers can find in New Carrollton, Md.: Orange Line Metro service along with Amtrak, MARC, Greyhound and a future Purple Line stop.

The transportation options are central to Urban Atlantic’s master plan for New Carrollton, which includes the expansion of offices, entertainment venues, shops and restaurants, as well as residences. An administrative building for Kaiser Permanente opened in 2019 and two new building sites for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are part of the 3.5 million-square-foot development.

Even with the ample train and bus service there, multiple employment centers — such as Northrop Grumman, the IRS and Giant — are within walking distance. Golf courses, the National Arboretum, FedEx Field and the Anacostia River are within a 10-minute drive from the development, and Capitol Hill can be reached in 20 minutes.
