The approved 2010 Subregion 4 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment recommends an implementation program that focuses on transit-oriented development, neighborhood conservation, and infrastructure and urban design improvements concentrated around eight Metro stations and two corridors—MD 214 and MD 4—in the central part of Prince George's County. The Subregion 4 TOD Implementation Project is targeting the Central Avenue (MD 214) corridor within the county. Connectivity to employment and recreational centers—and proximity to four Metro stations—present strong opportunities for attracting transit-oriented development, increasing and diversifying the county's economic base and positioning the county as a desirable place to live.
The implementation program has a dual focus. It will promote transit-oriented development, high-quality urban design, and station accessibility around the Capitol Heights and Addison Road-Seat Pleasant Metro Stations while strengthening neighboring residential communities. It will also forge a clear marketing and economic development campaign and support business attraction and retention efforts along the broader Metro Blue Line corridor, extending from the District of Columbia to the Largo Town Center Metro Station.
