Fast Food in Fast Growing La Plata

Three new fast food restaurants may be showing up in the near future in La Plata. The word around the office is that McDonalds, Chick Fil a, and Taco bell will make their presence known. We are not sure if the current McDonalds will stay or go but it wouldnt be the first time two McDonalds were located pretty close to each other.
International House of Pancakes has opened in the Rosewick Crossing Shopping Center in La Plata. More stores are coming soon.

Under Construction

A few have asked what some of the new construction is in the Waldorf area, so lets go over a few of them:

Coming to the Waldorf Technology Park is a new Marriott Residence Inn

It is currently under construction behind the Festival Shopping Center which is also getting a face lift to compete with the new shopping centers that are popping up around them. You may have noticed that a large section where Subway and the Armed forced recruiter was has been torn down. This is because they are planning a new lifestyle center for that section. Festival has purchased a section of land next to their existing buildings along route 228. There are plans for more shopping, restaurants and financial facilities for that area. Some plans may take longer due to the current financial forecast.

I have already mentioned the Marriott Courtyard that is almost complete by the Best Buy, We also have a new bank under construction on the old steak and buffet pad site next door.

Hilton Garden will start construction shortly in the O' Donnell restaurant park near Bostons Pizza. The Captains Table seafood restaurant may still show up in the restaurant park, we will keep you posted.

The Shops at Lancaster is a new shopping center located behind the mall and at the entrance to Lancaster neighborhood. It should be complete by the end of winter.

Have you traveled on the new section of St. Charles Parkway?? This new section takes you from white plains public golf course to Rosewick road in La Plata. The drive is around ten minutes which really saves you a lot of time. It is already popular with joggers and bicyclists. Give it a try!

The new traffic light at Billingsley Road and St Charles Parkway should be turned on this week. So goodbye to that horrible 4 way stop.
more to come...
