The Prince George’s County Planning Department recently released its 2018 Morgan Boulevard and Vicinity Study and Action Plan, which evaluates redevelopment of the area.
The study was commissioned to assess complementary uses to the parking lot adjacent to FedExField. This would benefit the County, stadium owners, patrons, and residents of the surrounding community. It would also attract patrons when there are no scheduled events at the stadium.
The market analysis suggests the area is well positioned to become a regional, potentially national, destination for amateur indoor athletics and sports-focused entertainment, while simultaneously becoming Prince George’s County’s premier destination for active adult, senior living, and wellness-based communities. These two ideas complement each other and fit within the current approved land use and zoning framework.
The proposed indoor amateur sports and entertainment venue will differentiate itself within the market through its scale and the level of integrated complementary amenities. The proposed active adult/wellness community would be a mixed-use residential community designed for the needs of seniors, but not exclusively age restricted. The community would be large enough to accommodate a variety of lifestyles, price points, graduated-care settings, and housing types with significant integrated retail, recreational, cultural, and healthcare amenities.
