A small-plane airport in suburban Maryland that was used for pilot training during World War II is the site of a proposed mixed-use development across 425 acres.
Housing developer NVR filed plans to develop the former Washington Executive Airport, also known as Hyde Field, and the adjacent sand and gravel mine into 1,288 residences, 60K SF of commercial space, public outdoor parks and a solar energy farm, branded as Hyde Landing.
The site at the intersection of Steed and Piscataway roads in Clinton sits just outside the Beltway, about 6 miles from Joint Base Andrews.
The developer would leave 180 acres around Tinker’s Creek undeveloped for preservation purposes. The proposal is slated to be considered by the Prince George’s County Planning Board next month.
