IMO Laurel is a dump, and so are Maryland taxes.

Laurel is about 10 miles away from the Metro Greenbelt station. At 250M per mile, this project would cost at least 2.5B to complete. Given the low density along the route, the relatively low additional benefits (The route would parallel Camden Line), long project lifecycle (Silver Line takes 50 years from concept to reality) and Metro's current issues, I don't see that happening within my lifetime. The more practical way of introducing high frequency service would be to upgrade Camden Line.

I keep up with a lot of the developmental projects going on in the DC area and there's been talk for years about Prince George's wanting to make themselves the next MoCo and rebrand themselves, at least from a development and employment perspective.

And they've had some success with projects like the MGM and I guess this project but imo there's still a lot of work to be done.

This is far from the first, "is this the next Tyson's?" We heard that with so many other developments and the reason they cannot compete is the proximity to public transit (even before metro, Tysons was a major bus hub and work destination). Unless corporate America relocates to Laurel, I seriously doubt it.

Konterra will be much more compatible to Mosiac and other planned communities that are popping up everywhere these days. I hope they have a Whole Foods and other yuppy artisan shops lined up to match the overpriced rent they'll likely be charging. Look at the renderings on their website looks like they lifted them straight from the South Park episodes.

I would guess it's more of a crossover compact SUV.

To me, it reminded me more of a name for a video game developer in the 80s.

I don't know much about it. I saw signs for it off the highway. I think it has a fighting chance because the county connector toll road roads close to it, and there is hardly ever any traffic on it.
