LANDOVER GATEWAY Approved Landover Gateway Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment 113 Chapter 6: Community Development Elements Market Potential Vision Stakeholders and the community envision future development of a mixed-use center that incorporates opportunities to live, work, and play. By combining uses, the area will achieve a vitality that continues well past the end of the workday. Synergy among uses will create a stronger whole as residents patronize local restaurants and retail shops, and the mix of commercial, entertainment, and cultural uses makes Landover Gateway an attractive residential location. Cultural uses will enliven the district and attract users from around the region. Major governmental, institutional, and other offices will provide a daytime population to support retailers and restaurants. Finally, transit extensions will link the Landover Gateway area to the Metro system, providing access for area residents and reducing impacts of auto traffic. Background Landover Gateway area was once the county’s retail center, taking advantage of the superior access and visibility provided by the Capital Beltway. Currently, the area is ripe for redevelopment with a series of major land holdings available for new uses. The Woodmore Towne Centre at Glenarden project promises to bring major new retail, office, hotel, and residential development to the area. FedEx Field brings tens of thousands of fans to the area 10 to 15 times per year. Area development has been constrained by the lack of rail transit, public safety concerns, and the blighting impact of older apartment complexes. Office demand has been limited in recent years, indicating a need to recruit major governmental or institutional tenants to anchor the new development. Goals Design a new downtown Prince George’s County with pedestrian activity and vitality that attracts consumers, residents, and visitors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
