Westphalia Has More Buy In (Demo)

Westphalia has 100% commitment from four builders to build townhomes at the soon to be fully constructed town center.   I know Westphalia sounds like some land in a fable but I assure you, it’s real.  This $2 billion town center located on Route 4/Pennsylvania Ave and Presidential Parkway.  DO NOT ask me exactly where it is.  I’m a DC girl; I need hundred blocks, quadrants, landmarks.  Is there a Big Chair near this Westphalia?  The Walton website describes the location, “The property is located along the north side of Maryland State Route 4 (Pennsylvania Avenue) directly across from the Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility and approximately 1.5 miles southwest of the Capital Beltway (I-495). The southern edge of the property features more than 1.5 miles of frontage along Pennsylvania Avenue.”
Westphalia-RegionalMapThe picture is coming together in my head as to why County Executive Baker is promoting the “buy Suitland” campaign. That campaign won’t work until there is assurance you won’t get carjacked in Suitland.  Don’t get me wrong, y’all know I think Suitland has some of the BEST potential for development.  Check out their sidewalks, funky retro architecture, subway station, urban/town feel, but the crime occurrences have to come down.
The Walton Group of Companies (Walton) announced that it has entered into agreements with Mid-Atlantic Builders and Haverford Homes to build townhomes at Westphalia Town Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Each builder purchased 102 townhome lots that together commit the remaining 204 of 348 lots. Walton’s first builder agreement was made with NVR, Inc. for 144 lots and the latest agreements with Mid-Atlantic Builders and Haverford Homes complete Phase 1 with 100% commitment for 348 homes.

The Town Center is being touted as transit oriented development because of it’s 4-5 mile proximity to Branch Avenue and its walkable design.  Upon completion, Westphalia is expected to offer diverse residential options, including single-family homes, townhomes, and apartments. The development also will feature an elementary school, fire and rescue facility, shopping and restaurants, commercial office space, as well as a hotel. Construction at Westphalia began earlier this summer. Phase I work is projected to be completed in early 2014. Westphalia Town Center is expected to deliver a significant economic boost to the region, with a projected 15,000 permanent office and retail jobs, as well as $21 million in county taxes.
