As we have written about extensively the Dunn Loring Merrifield Metro area is seeing a massive redevelopment these days. From being a patchwork of new developments (Halstead at the Metro, Wilton House, Westbriar etc) and old light commercial businesses (Remington Mulch, Car repair shops, towing companies etc) it is now turning into a viable and walkable town center destination of its own.
Notable current projects include:
- Route 29 and Gallows Road intersection construction to make the congested area more accessible.
- Mosaic District with entertainment, dining, shopping and living (EYA Town Homes)
- Dunn Loring/Merrifield Metro redevelopment to include a Harris Teeter
- Halstead Square new residential, office and retail development near Wilton House, Halstead at the Metro and just a block from the Dunn Loring/Merrifield Metro.
All this new construction will benefit the area as a whole and also residents of the existing and new communities within walking distance. The area will now be perfect for people wanting to work downtown during the week and playing close to home on the weekend. Here are the Top 8 communities that will benefit from all this:
