[ARCHIVED] County Executive Statement Regarding Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States Plans by Metro

Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States plans to Build New Building by the New Carrollton Metro Station.
176,000-square-foot administrative and IT facility to house up to 850 new jobs in Prince George’s County

Upper Marlboro, MD - Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, released this statement regarding the announcement from Forest City Washington and Urban Atlantic that Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States plans to Build New Building by the New Carrollton Metro Station.  Construction is expected to be completed by November 2018.  The 176,000 square foot facility will house up to 850 new administrative and IT jobs.  

“Prince George’s County welcomes Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States and their 850 employees to their new home in Urban Atlantic’s development adjacent to the New Carrollton Metro Station.

Kaiser’s decision today provides the County with what may be the largest single new employer of my Administration. The New Carrollton Metro Station is one of the County’s five priority Transit Oriented Development (TOD)communities. It has  been exciting to watch New Carrollton grow dramatically over the past five years: joining the Internal Revenue Service and its over 2,500 employees there are the headquarters for Maryland's Department of Housing and Community Development and the relocated and expanded headquarters for 2U, Inc.

Now, with the addition of 850 new employees of Kaiser Permanente, this TOD destination is going to continue to grow into a mixed use regional hub, where our residents can work, live, and prosper at one of the most convenient and accessible destinations on the east coast of the United States.”
