The Landover Gateway Sector Plan envisions the Glenarden Apartments site as a new mixed use, mixed income community. Once the existing vacant buildings have been demolished, a complete redevelopment is proposed with affordable for sale townhouses and senior housing complimented by market rate housing and 25,000 square feet of commercial/retail space. Demolition is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014 with the new construction starting in 2016.
4100 Rhode Island Avenue
This 2.4 acre site offers excellent accessibility and visibility along the Rhode Island Avenue corridor in the Town of Brentwood. With dramatic topography and mixed use zoning, this property is ideally suited to support residential development above ground retail uses. This redevelopment will support the objectives articulated in the Gateway Arts District and Brentwood plans completed by the Maryland National Park and Planning Commission.
The Redevelopment Authority selected Landex as the developer for 3807 Rhode Island Avenue. The project is located on one of the prime retail sites within the Town of Brentwood and the Gateway Arts District. The redevelopment plan includes demolishing the three existing vacant buildings and replacing them with a mixed use building with 6,000 square feet of commercial and retail space on the ground floor and 147 residential units on the upper floors.
The project is expected to break ground in the Summer of 2015.
Suitland Manor Project
The Suitland Manor redevelopment is a 22 acre site within ½ mile of the Suitland Metro Station, located near the Census Bureau.

The vision for the site is a walkable, sustainable, transit oriented, mixed use, Town Center with 700 housing units and 76,000 square feet of retail.
The Redevelopment Authority anticipates completing the land entitlement planning by the Summer of 2015.
