Article on the College Park City Hall construction College Park City Council approves $3 million contract for City Hall construction manager - Arc Publishing

Construction is set to begin by 2020, said assistant city manager Bill Gardiner.

Based on those plans, the city would be allotted about 33,000 square feet and the university would get 45,000 square feet, with the remaining 10,000 for retail use.

The city estimates the project overall could cost as much as $30.5 million, said Katie Hearn, senior vice president at Redgate, which is working as a consultant on the project.

I think this is what it will look like. If so, not bad.

LIDL Aims to make Grocery Shopping Affordable in College Park Lidl aims to make grocery shopping affordable in College Park - Arc Publishing


Construction on the facility began earlier in 2019 on the site of the former Clarion Inn, which closed in January 2018. The store is expected to open in June at the latest, but will hopefully open sooner, said Ryan Chelton, College Park’s economic development coordinator.


“It seems very fast,” Chelton said. “But based on how fast they’re going through their construction process … if anybody is going to be open that early, I guess it might be them.”

New start-up moving to College Park. This stuff is important, need more people working here, going to restaurants/shops. Maybe moving to College Park to shorten their commute. Startup that offers free online cybersecurity courses will move to College Park - Arc Publishing



Next month, Cybrary will move from its current location in Greenbelt to a new 11,000-square-foot space in the College Park Discovery District, with plans to permanently relocate to a 25,000-square-foot facility on River Road in the next 18 months.

Taqueria Habanero got a great review in the Washington Post today, they are saying its better than the original in DC. This will definately help draw more people to the restaurant from outside College Park. https://www.washingtonpost.com/going...=.65b3f9a16d48

I like their food, but just need to get their liquor license

Glad the area is getting more food options other than pizza and Chinese joints.
