The Mint's operations are moving to Greenbelt https://wtop.com/prince-georges-coun...and-literally/

Quote:
The bureau is relocating from its historic building overlooking the Tidal Basin on 14th Street Southwest to unused 104-acre site at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center that sits along Powder Mill Road — about halfway between the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Maryland Route 201.
...
“Primarily we will be manufacturing United States currency,” said Olijar. “We will have four production lines there, and we will also be doing a lot of the research and development related to security feature and design.”
It’s a result of Prince George’s County luring federal buildings and the jobs they bring in.
...

He noted that it’s located not far from one of the county’s major employment corridors.
“The [nearby U.S.] Route 1 corridor right now around College Park is probably the most dynamic area in Prince George’s County in terms of job growth; the construction of new facilities, both apartments and offices; and building around the strengths of the University of Maryland,” he said.
...
A traffic analysis was conducted on the new facility’s impact, said Lisa Swoboda, the senior director for the Maryland Commerce Department’s Office of Military and Federal Affairs. And the BW Parkway, Maryland Route 201 and U.S. Route 1 are among the roads that will likely see lots more traffic.
According to Swoboda, the first occupants probably won’t move in until 2026, with full occupancy — and the first line of production with currency — expected a year later.

Wow. I used to live on nearby Cherry Hill Road. Lived there for a few years back in the 80s. That area has changed a lot in the last 30 years, has become much more conjested.

It would be nice if the could also work on cryptocurrency there as well. Paper money is slowly fading. They should focus a lot of research on digital currency.

If that's the case, they would simply convert the space to a big datacenter that mints crypto.

Nevertheless, it is good to see them locate in the county. If you ever drive through the Agricultural Research property, it is HUGE. It is like you're in some rural part of the state.

Yeah, who would've thought that an agricultural research center would be rural?
