New MedStar Medical Building Coming to Waldorf

Since this is a large project I figure it needed its own separate post.

MedStar Shah Medical Group is currently removing the building at the corner of Crain Highway and St. Patrick's Drive for a new three story 51,000 sf state of the art facility.  It will house a walk in clinic, cancer center, pharmacy, medical specialists, surgical specialists, and also diagnostic services.
We look forward to its completion and the many specialties it will bring to help the surrounding community.

July Updates

 Happy July! Hope you are enjoying the summer.  It's been a little quiet but there is still lots of projects in the works.  

If you want to see something in the area please contact that company and let them know you want them here!  They need to hear from the consumer more than anything.

One other thing.  Tip your servers!!  The wage for tipped employees is $3.63 per hour in Maryland.  They make less than minimum wage and depend on tips to live.  I speak to restaurant servers all the time and its shameful the stories I hear about people running up tabs and leaving next to nothing.  Please think about that before you go out.

Since I get asked about certain markets and restaurants so much Its time to dust off this post I did to give an understanding of why some places are not here: 

Wawa La Plata is finishing up a major refurbishment on their entire property.  The entire store was gutted and redone.  New stone and paint on the exterior as well as around the pumps.  New landscaping going in with smaller trees to make it more visible.  Grand Re-Opening Friday July 12th.

Clothes Mentor will be opening a store in the Berry Patch Shopping Center next to Wawa on Berry Road (Rt. 228) in Waldorf.  Clothes Mentor is a resale store that buys and sells high-quality, gently used name-brand and designer clothing, shoes and accessories.  This is only their second store in the Maryland area.

Construction is about to get started on a new freestanding building in the La Plata Plaza Shopping Center.  Five Guys will be one of the tenants. 

Countryside Kennels will be taking over the former Riviera Kennels property in Hughesville after a refurbishment of the property.  They hope to open by November of this year.

MedStar Shah Medical Group is removing the current five story building at 10 St. Patrick's Drive in Waldorf to make way for a new state of the art medical center.  More details as we get them.

Starbucks with drive thru has opened in the Brandywine Crossing Shopping Center.
Carter's and OshKosh B'gosh are coming this October to The Shops at Waldorf Center.  They will be taking 5,000 sf next to Ross.

Aldi in Waldorf Shoppers World should open sometime in August.  They are very close to completion.  UPDATE August 15 2019 is the Grand Opening.

As far as we have seen thru email and construction Chicken Rico will return.  They are working on some interior alterations that require more approvals from the county.
