Company News

Last Friday was all about Dave & Buster’s and Phase III development at Ritchie Station Marketplace! We kicked off Phase III with a ceremonial groundbreaking at the site of the new restaurant/arcade/sports bar, Dave & Buster’s. The 40,000-square-foot restaurant will add 250 new jobs to Prince George’s County. Council Member Derrick L. Davis opened and closed the speeches, with many in between from our own Kenneth and Gary Michael to County Executive Rushern Baker.

Mr. Davis had kind words for Mr. Michael and NAI Michael – “Ken Michael is a catalyst. He is someone who really believes in Prince George’s County. He is someone who really believes in the community and utilizing the land that we have here in Prince George’s County for the best and the good economic development…” County Executive Rushern Baker honored the late Wayne K. Curry, the former county executive and our former company president,  by stating that Wayne “saw what the county was and what the county could be by working for the Michael’s company.” After the groundbreaking, Pohanka Hyundai hosted a wonderful reception. It was a beautiful day and a great way to celebrate the upcoming development.

A video of the groundbreaking can be found here.
