Recently we posted about the new warehouse that was proposed for building in Westphalia Town Center. Shortly after that two public meetings were held and the residents spoke out in opposition regarding the industrial facility. Many opinions were shared and a final result was provided earlier this week: there will no longer be a warehouse coming to Westphalia. The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission Chair was firm in validating the concerns and feelings of residents regarding traffic, the environment, and home values.
The warehouse was expected to house a 4-million square-foot merchandise fulfillment center for Amazon, and many hearings and meetings regarding the project have been held over the past few months. Instead, Maryland’s Commerce Department stated they will offer assistance in finding another site in Maryland and the PG County Executive stated she would also work with the company to identify a more suitable location.
The County Executive also stated that the administration will work with the developer to bring the retail, dining, and other amenities to the community.
