Default The New Prince George's Hospital Moving to Largo

Largo wins new $645M hospital over Landover -- Gazette.Net

Quote:
A new $654 million regional hospital will be built near the Largo Town Center Metro station, the Dimensions Healthcare System Board of Directors announced Aug. 22 during a news conference at the Prince George’s County Hospital Center in Cheverly.


The board for Dimensions, a nonprofit organization operating four hospitals in Prince George’s County, voted unanimously in favor of building the 280-bed hospital at the Largo site over another site at the former Landover Mall property, citing walkable Metro access and existing solid infrastructure.
Seems like a good move to me. The current hospital can be kind of challenging to get to with public transportation. Putting it with the metro is smart in my opinion.

This is good news. And yet at the same time, it looks like it's back to Square 1 on what to do with the former Landover Mall site...

I have heard so many ideas, it's really ridiculous for that site to be left like that. It's a complete eye sore right near one of the most visited parts of the county, FedEx Field. It makes no sense that they haven't figured out something. It's a complete waste. Can you imagine if they have added maybe a shopping center with restaurants/bars, with all the people that go there, how much money the county could make?

That's just it. What happens when there is no football season and there are no game patrons, just the locals who probably couldn't afford the types of restaurants and bars that people would enjoy before and after games? Right now, I guess the developers feel they can't sustain any level f patronage outside of game days. Revitalization has not yet visited the Landover Rd. corridor inside the Beltway.

How can you say that and they justified building a Wegmans across 95? If they don't have the money for that kind of development, who is shopping at Wegmans?

Like a lot of posters already said, Wegmans is not very expensive at all. I know some would like to think it's expensive, but I wouldn't toot my horn over having a Wegman's. It's a good quality store with tons of options, but the price point is not that of Whole Foods, Balduccis, Dean & Deluca, etc. And littled do people know, MOMs and Yes! Organic are insanely expensive due to their niche. While Wegmans does have some pricey signature items, you can make it out of Wegmans paying as much as you would in Safeway or Giant.

Wegman's hype is over the products it offers ... at the scale it offers them at ... and how exclusive the chain is in terms of there isn't a Wegman's on every other street corner like a Giant or Safeway. Wegman's is not a top-tier stores based on how pricey they are. Wegman's isn't expensive at all. I found them cheaper than Shoppers and even Giant on a lot of things. But the products are quality and Wegman's has a lot of in-house products you won't find at any other chain.

Wegmans isn't exactly in Capitol Heights. They are still very selective about the areas that they locate to. Their price point isn't high, but they are still considered high-end and the surrounding areas, were a big consideration for them selecting that site. Even with that said, why are we assuming that that area needs something high-end to cater to the people who go to the stadium? Even an Applebee's would be an improvement. I mean it's a dirt pile. You mean to tell me that they could add something after almost 10 years? The county could gain a lot of revenue by taking advantage of all those people coming to those games.
