LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks will hold a press conference tomorrow morning to announce County and State Commercial Property Improvement Program (CPIP) grant awards that will help revitalize some of Prince George’s County’s shopping centers that have fallen into disrepair throughout the years. More than $1.9 million has been awarded to nine shopping center owners to make façade improvements to increase safety, competitiveness and viability.
While County Executive Alsobrooks has a focus on new development in the County, such as the new Kaiser Permanente building, planned WMATA headquarters and Urban Atlantic build-out in New Carrollton, her administration is also laser-focused on redevelopment, including the 42 shopping centers identified as in-need of improvements. Seventy-eight percent of the CPIP grant recipients are owners of shopping centers inside the Beltway.
Tomorrow’s announcement will also unveil new national retailers that will soon open their doors at The Landing at Woodyard.
