The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (“Metro”) has announced that certain surplus properties in the Washington, D.C. metro area are available for sale. These properties have the potential to be developed for commercial, residential, or mixed-use purposes. Each property is near or adjacent to Metro stations and therefore has valuable transit accessibility. Four surplus properties are located in Prince George’s County and are listed below:
