Construction progress is in full effect in Fort Lincoln. We are getting closer to the opening of the much anticipated Shops at Dakota Crossing, the “almost” sold out Banneker Ridge Development and the start of the next large multi-family development in Fort Lincoln which consist of 123 town homes and 240 apartments.
Shops At Dakota Crossing
The Large parcels in the Shops at Dakota Crossing are expected to open 4th Quarter of 2016 with the remainder of the shopping center completing construction in the 1st Quarter of 2017. The Opening dates of the remaining shops have not been announced, however the buildings will be completed.
There appears to only be 8 Home sites remaining at the new Banneker Ridge residential development. If you want to claim your piece of the most expansive view of the DMV there’s still time. Granted you may have to wait a few years before you see services such as an adequate park & an unshuttered school catch up with the progress of the rest of community…Bazinga! We are actually making progress towards conducting a study for a more comprehensive park design & exploring options to expedite the opening of the school; more details forthcoming.
Fort Lincoln Multi-Family Development
Fort Lincoln continues its tradition of building family sized apartments, town homes & condos throughout the community. Although the new developments all have the required Inclusionary Zoning Units, there is still a lot of concern about the affordability of new construction residential developments. During the last SMD Meeting the developer announced that Fort Lincoln overall will be 60% affordable when development is complete, and that the affordable units were built earlier in the development. I’ve met with neighbors and we are planning a home buying seminar later this year to be sure that long time & current residents are taking advantage of all possible home-buying incentives to increase their chances of attaining home ownership in new developments in Fort Lincoln.
