College Park Business & Construction Summer 2020 Updates

Aug. 20, 2020

Although campus has been quiet for the past few months, a lot has been going on in College Park. Businesses in the Discovery District, such as Potomac Pizza and Bagels ‘N Grinds, are open and excited to serve College Park and the surrounding community. The Hall CP is also open for dine in and takeout and has outdoor seating available in their recently unveiled backyard. For more information on supporting local College Park business click here.

 

Progress continued on the Discovery District Park while campus was closed and it is now open between WeWork and The Hall CP. Connected to UMD’s WiFi network, and featuring dining tables, Adirondack chairs, and swings, the park is a great place to stop by for lunch, a short meeting, or to check your email. This space will provide great opportunities for outdoor, physically distanced activities.


Demolition of the old city hall building began in February 2020 and work on the new city hall project has continued. You can see the latest construction updates via the project camera: a live stream of the project site. The project camera also includes time lapse videos so you can see how the project has progressed over the past few months.
