Aquatic Center Coming to Brandywine


This is a project that has been in the works for a while (2013) and since there was a groundbreaking late last year I'm going to go ahead and post about it.

The Prince Georges County Parks and Recreation is going to build a 77,000 square foot indoor aquatic and recreation center on a 65 acre parcel of land near the intersection of Brandywine Road and Missouri Avenue.  The project is scheduled to open late 2018.  You can read more about it here:

Latest Concept for St. Charles Retail

I have been getting a lot of questions about whats going on at the corner of St. Charles Parkway and Billingsley Road.  The St. Charles Companies were nice enough to send me this concept plan they have for future retail and apartments that they are currently putting in the infrastructure for.
For now this is what could be built there but plans may change.  There are no tenants signed up so anything you hear is just rumors.  The apartments shown at the bottom will probably go up first.  No dates on the completion of the project.

A roundabout will be constructed at the intersection with MD 373 (Accokeek Road). Work on the project will also include: 

• Drainage and landscaping improvements
• Interchange lighting
• Signing and pavement marking upgrades
• Sidewalks and ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
• Park and Ride facility.

• Phase 1–Construction of the MD 5 east-side and west-side embankments, northbound and southbound entrance ramps, and median piers. 

• Phase 2–Construction of the Brandywine Road bridge deck and MD 5 median.

• Phase 4–Construction of the northbound exit ramp to Brandywine Road and southbound MD 5 shoulder
