Ritchie Station Marketplace Groundbreaking

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.

Prince George’s State of the County Breakfast

Company News

Last Thursday, the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation hosted a breakfast event at Colony South Hotel & Convention Center in Clinton, MD. It was a fantastic event with speeches from Prince George’s County elected officials about what’s been happening in the county and where it’s going from here. EDC President & CEO Gwen McCall talked about bringing in international business and announced that the entire county is now a Foreign Trade Zone. She also discussed Youth@Work, a summer employment program, and encouraged area businesses to use it to hire youth for the summer. We were also treated to an overview of the new EDC branding campaign, Experience, Expand, and Explore Prince George’s County.

There is a lot of activity going on in the county, from the potential FBI headquarters to MGM’s $925 million casino and resort at National Harbor. In fact, the county has $6 billion worth of development projects in the pipeline!

County Executive Rushern Baker focused on how education impacts economic development, “schools are paramount to our economic success. We can’t afford to lose sight… We need strong school systems to attract new residents and businesses.”

His entire speech can be watched here.

The event was an excellent opportunity to hear about everything going on in the county, including the new hospital and potential FBI headquarters, to where Prince George’s County is going in the future. Speakers at the event included County Executive Rushern Baker, Council Chairman Mel Franklin, and EDC President Gwen McCall, among other county officials and business leaders.

The new branding campaign, “Prince George’s County – Experience. Expand.

The campaign consists of traditional advertising and social media content. There is even a new “Explore Prince George’s County” app that allows users to find things to do, dining, events, and lodging in Prince George’s County. Their new website connects people to all the ways they can learn about and interact with the county.

Everyone at NAI Michael is very excited about the new campaign, and we are looking forward to seeing how Prince George’s County grows! Experience. Expand. Explore.
