In April 2022, the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) Board of Directors approved a request by the County Executive of Prince George’s County for MSA’s assistance with respect to the feasibility, design, development, and construction of proposed sports and entertainment facilities in Central Prince George’s County along the Blue Line Corridor. The proposed facilities include the following:
- Central Library, Cultural Center and Magnet Charter School
- Basketball / Volleyball Fieldhouse
- Central Avenue Market Hall
- Wayne K. Curry Civic Plaza
- Fedex Field (Stadium Demolition)
Next steps include negotiation of a Memorandum of Understanding which will dictate roles and responsibilities of both parties. Of note, with the exception of the stadium demolition at Fedex Field, Prince George’s County anticipates that all other proposed facilities would be constructed on land owned by the county and/or of public and quasi-public partners, all of whom were partners in creating the Blue Line Corridor vision.
