Greetings from the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation

Prince George’s County has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade and is rapidly becoming the epicenter for economic development in the Washington metropolitan area. We boast a Triple A Bond rating, a highly skilled workforce, and a large supply of undeveloped land. Our county is served by multiple interstate highways, three international airports and access to the Port of Baltimore. We have the largest number of Metro stations in the Capital region that are primed for TOD and smart growth.

Prince George’s County is home to several federal, academic and commercial assets, including: NOAA, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Joint Base Andrews (home of Air Force One), the University of Maryland at College Park, Bowie State University, Prince George’s Community College, Howard University Beltsville, Woodmore Towne Centre, Steeplechase International Business Park, Washington Redskins FedEx Field, and Six Flags America—to name a few.

Our crown jewel is National Harbor, a $4 billion, 300-acre waterfront complex of condominiums, townhouses, restaurants, hotels and retailers. It is anchored by the Gaylord National Hotel and Resort, and has served as a catalyst for attracting high-end retail and commercial development projects. In December 2016, a $1.3 Billion luxury resort and Casino - MGM National Harbor opened and is expected to draw thousands each year from across the Washington Metropolitan region and beyond.

National Harbor is also hope to the Capital Wheel. Standing 190 feet high, this observation wheel has 42 climate-controlled gondolas that can carry a maximum of 336 passengers, providing bird’s eye views of the Washington Monument, U.S. Capitol, Alexandria and Prince George’s County.

While we are excited about these and many other projects on the horizon, there are still tremendous opportunities for growth and investment in Prince George’s County. We invite you to come see for yourself. We have a wealth of incentives, programs and resources to help you make the decision to experience, expand and explore Prince George’s County. I’m sure that you will agree that Prince George’s County is “Primed for Business!”
