The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) announced that it’s offering “a prime property for development” in the Eisenhower neighborhood.

According to the release:

The approximately half-acre site is a short walk from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station on the Yellow Line, and next to the Metro Building at Eisenhower.

As part of the solicitation process, Metro has released a Request for Proposals (RFP), to redevelop the property. The Eisenhower East site at 2403-2415 Mill Road in the City of Alexandria, VA provides direct access to I-495, and is proximate to Hoffman Town Center, a 17-acre mixed-use community planned for up to 6.9 million square feet of development and Carlyle Crossing, a 1.7 million square feet mixed-use development which features a recently opened 81,000 square feet Wegmans.

Metro said the Eisenhower location is the first of five joint development solicitations to be released this year as Metro tries to sell off real estate holdings to generate desperately needed revenue.
