Where We Are

 The Arts District runs for 2 miles along Route 1. The Gateway Arts District is the only arts district in Maryland to feature more than one city/town, and

  Is the closest in Maryland to the Washington, DC area (following Wheaton, MD; Bethesda, MD; Silver Spring, MD; and the DC Arts District of Washington, DC).

Character Areas

The City of Hyattsville provides an online map that we've placed below (the map is referenced in Section 4, Page 12 of the Sector Plan). The different colors relate to the Sector Plan's Character Areas (click on 'Legend' on the upper-left), which inform each property's use and as a whole, potential real property tax eligiblity. For more about the character areas, read the Sector Plan's Implementation Section (5), page 135. Better yet, contact your local CDC. View below:

The Arts District encompasses six character areas: six complementary pieces that perform different but sometimes overlapping functions for the arts district. 

  1. The Town Center character area in red is a walkable, pedestrian oriented area with mixed use development.
  2. The Arts Production and Entertainment character area in blue likewise supports a mix, but specifically gears itself towards artist live/work space, artist larger-scale production space, small-scale retail and commercial businesses and entertainment uses.
  3. Neighborhood Arts and Production in green is similiar but on a smaller and quieter scale with less traffic, so that it blends into the Traditional Residential Neighborhood character area in light yellow.
  4. The latter is primarily for single families and also artists who wish to produce and teach from their homes. 
  5. The Multifamily Residential community also supports artists by including auxiliary buildings with studios for residents, and facilitates multimodal transporation.
  6. The Stream Valley Park is in green.
