Prince George’s County is looking to redevelop 10 county-owned properties as local leaders put a renewed emphasis on transit-oriented development, with a large parcel adjacent to Bowie State University and the former University of Maryland Medical System hospital site in Cheverly among the largest properties up for grabs.
The county’s economic development-focused agencies announced these development opportunities Wednesday as part of their second “Grand Slam” event, designed to draw interest from developers looking to partner up on these projects. Should these efforts come to fruition, local officials hope this work will feed into County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ ambitious plans to grow the county’s economy via new mixed-use construction.
Many of the properties on offer are clustered around the northeastern section of Prince George’s, where past redevelopment plays have been successful. But some are designed to encourage growth along the county’s four Metro Blue Line stations, where development has been slower to materialize and where Alsobrooks wants to spur new activity.
