Yeah. But usually, when they start demolition, they do more than part of a roof. And you would see demo equipment there until it is cleared. Much like the Lidl site and the auto parts store.

I think all the rain pooled up on that part of the roof and it just fell.

Cava Grill opening in College Park in November, this should be very popular, CAVA is growing nationally but they are a local company. CEO is from UMD, would be great if they opened one of their Cava Mezze's in College Park. Cava Mezze is just a sit down restaurant as opposed to fast casual Cava Grill.



Cava is set to open on Route 1 in November - The Diamondback


Bookholders moved to a more inconvenient location due to rising rent, which is too bad. Most college towns have off campus book stores nearby. Route 1 rent went up, BookHolders moved out

That just it, the summertime retail season in College Park is brutal. That's why the city needs to continue to get non-student residents to move in. That's the only way to sustain any kind of vibrancy when the university is closed. Otherwise, retailers will continue to go elsewhere or close shortly after opening.

If College Park needs enough yearlong residential density to sustain continued retail growth. I would guess that College Park needs an additional 15,000 permanent residents to stop College Park from becoming a ghost town in the summer.

New apartments and townhomes are coming online very slowly. Fuse, now Alloy, was a big step to making that happen, but the fire was a huge setback. The College Park Southern Gateway needs to happen fast.

The Gilbane project at the College Park metro needs to happen as well.

Ideally, once the Purple Line is complete, that opens up a whole new opportunity for people to come from other nearby places to shop and eat in COllege Park.

I think every college town needs a great town square or plaza.

I hope this development will do for downtown College Park what East Campus was supposed to do ten years ago.

After experiencing the disappointments of East Campus, it will be nice to actually see a groundbreaking for this development. Crossing my fingers.

There's also no mention of the movie theater indicated in the early renderings. Not sure going with a fitness retailer is the best thing with Gold's Gym and Orange Theory in the area.

The redevelopment project for the former Quality Inn and Plato's Diner site on Route 1 took a big step forward on Tuesday, as the College Park City Council adopted a plan that would allow a $4 million in tax credit to a development company.

The council voted 7-1 to adopt the resolution, which would provide the Bozzuto Development Company with a 60 percent tax cut over 15 years to build an apartment complex with retail spaces on the site. District 1 Councilman Fazlul Kabir voted against the measure.

Adding bike lanes and other updates to a segment of Route 1 could mean six years of traffic delays and disruptions in College Park, a State Highway Administration official said during Tuesday's city council meeting.


Widening Route 1 in College Park could mean six years of traffic disruptions - The Diamondback


This does not sound good. 6 years?!

Yeah. That's pretty messed up. Hopefully, towards the end, they can speed things up after the Purple Line is completed.
