Green Owl Design is revamping several more historic structures on the 4800 blocks of Rhode Island Avenue which were built from 1927 to 1932. 

The Arts District-based design firm is working with the Menkiti Group to refresh a block of storefronts along Rhode Island Avenue near Streetcar 82 Brewing Co.

Co-founder Erica Riggio said they are refreshing the facades with a more modern material while keeping the Tudor design, adding a new roof and retaining wall and upgrading the interior.

After talking with area residents, Riggio said she hopes space will end up with some retail and a restaurant, bar, diner or other food-related business, especially if it’s locally owned.

“Our desire would be to make Hyattsville more of a destination,” she told the Hyattsville Wire. “There is a desperate need for more spots to go to for food and drink.”

Green Owl Design, a part of the SoHy Collective, previously updated a dentist’s office and other buildings at 5804 Baltimore Ave. and helped set up Polka Dot Park and the nearby Instagram-friendly murals.
