Brownsville Transit Village[edit]

Adjacent to the Brownsville Metrorail station is the construction of a new housing project, "Brownsville Transit Village." The project is composed of 5 mid-rise residential towers (467 apartments) with ground floor retail. The buildings are considered transit-oriented development, and are being designed around the metro station. The project was completed by 2012.[2][3] However, as of 2016, Brownsville and Santa Clara (Santa Clara Apartments TOD), are the lowest ridership stations in the system.[4]
