Metro Opens New Parking Garage at Twinbrook Metro Station

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) opened a new 426-space parking garage at the Twinbrook Metrorail Station on October 7. The new Metro West Garage was constructed by JBG as part of a joint development project and provides replacement parking for an existing surface parking lot that will be used for retail, residential and offices.

Existing traffic patterns and parking rates ($4.75 on weekdays, free on weekends) will not change. The new Metro West Garage will be accessible from Chapman Avenue, which is adjacent to the station.

Construction has begun on the second phase of the project, which includes 206 apartments (15 percent affordable) and 33,000 square feet of retail shops.

See Metro’s website for more details.
