Hyattsville city officials want to rename the Prince George’s Plaza Metro Station to Hyattsville Crossing. The move would be the culmination of a years-long effort by city officials to develop a more cohesive identity for the neighborhood anchored by the Metro station. In a June vote, Hyattsville City Council approved a measure directing city staff to request the name be changed on official Metro maps in advance of the planned opening of Phase II of the Silver Line, which will require all Metro maps to be reprinted. The Metro station derives it name from the former Prince George’s Plaza mall, known today as the Mall at Prince George’s and branded as simply MPG by its owners REIT. Since the Metro station opened, the surrounding area has changed dramatically.
