Magruder Pointe (WSSC Building)

Project Description 

Magruder Pointe is a proposed housing development to be located at 4017 Hamilton Street, on the site occupied by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission's (WSSC) former headquarters. The site consists of two parts: the upper site which currently houses the vacant headquarters building, and a lower site that is currently used as a parking lot.

The applicant, Werrlein Properties, is proposing the construction of single-family homes and townhouses on the property. The plan also creates two "community greens," as well as a large recreational space adjacent to Magruder Park. The applicant first presented their plan to the City Council on February 5, 2018.

On June 14, 2019, the Prince George’s County District Council (the County Council sitting as a land-use authority) approved CSP-18002, an application for rezoning the lower parcel from Open Space (OS) to R-55 and modified the development district standards to permit R-55 development within the entire 8.26 acre site.

On July 5, 2019, Delmarva Site Development commenced demolition activities scheduled for 60-90 days. The sidewalks along the upper lot have been closed for public safety. Demolition staging is taking place in the lower section of the upper lot. Processing (crushing) of the materials is taking place on the lower lot once a significant amount of debris has been accumulated.

The City anticipates the applicant to submit a Preliminary Plan of Subdivision (PPS) and Detailed Site Plan (DSP) applications in Fall 2019.
