The Villages at Dakota Crossing, near the Maryland-D.C. border in Northeast, will offer a slew of new condo-townhomes in the Fort Lincoln neighborhood. The Villages at Dakota Crossing, at about 3298 Fort Lincoln Drive, are about 334 units developed by Ryan Homes starting in the high $300,000s and ranging up to the lower $500,000s.
Sales of the Villages at Dakota Crossing began in late 2011 and about 145 homes have been sold so far, according to the developer’s website. The Villages at Dakota Crossing is located just of New York Avenue and Route 50 and just a few minutes’ drive to Capitol Hill.
The amenities in Villages at Dakota Crossing are similar to those found in the District’s suburbs – a community pool, tennis courts, detailed landscaping and “pocket parks” in the neighborhood, which is bound roughly by South Dakota Avenue and Fort Lincoln Drive. Retailers like Costco and Lowes are nearby, along with several other restaurants and shops.
Villages at Dakota Crossing townhome models can include up to four bedrooms and one- or two-car garages and up to 3.5 baths. These townhomes have four open floor plans that start at about 1,600 square feet. They’re brick front with hardwood floors and granite kitchen countertops along with rear decks. And they have Energy Star appliances.
The Fort Lincoln area, where D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier resides, is named for a fort that was constructed there to protect the city during the Civil War. Many of the homes there were built in the 1960s and the 1970s and the Villages at Dakota Crossing is among the latest slate of development breathing new life into the area.
The Fort Lincoln area is very close to one of the District’s most well kept secrets for recreation – the National Arboretum. Like Rock Creek Park, this is a gem of rare greenery in an impervious metropolitan area. And just a few short blocks away from the Villages at Dakota Crossing.
