Mystery: College Park, new city manager part ways after less than one day

In an announcement notable for its lack of details as much as the news it contained, College Park city officials announced they had parted ways with recently-hired city manager Natasha Hampton. 

Mystery industrial plans emerge for College Park site

At least two industrial development projects are interested in buying the Stone Straw site in northern College Park, according to city officials. Further details remain a mystery, save one: a proposal to build a fish processing plant on the site, first revealed in 2020, seems to be dead.

Downtown College Park retail could become 175-unit mid-rise apartment building

A prime downtown College Park block could transform from a single-story strip of retail to a mid-rise multi-story mixed-use apartment complex, but only if the developer’s rezoning dreams come true. The developer in question is Richard Greenberg’s Greenhill Companies, whose subsidiaries Terrapin Main Street LLC and Carrol Investors have assembled a block of adjoining properties on the southeastern corner of Baltimore Avenue and Hartwick Road. Under Greenberg’s conceptual plans, the 17,000 square-foot site would be redeveloped with 13,000 feet of ground floor retail topped with 150 to 160 apartments. Greenberg has asked Prince George’s County planning authorities to rezone the entire site to mixed-use-infill. In order to obtain a rezoning, he has to get a conceptual site plan approved.
