3599 East West Highway (Gas Station Redevelopment)

Project Description 

3599 East West Highway is a gas station located at the corner of East West Highway (MD-410) and Belcrest Road. In April 2018, the applicant presented their plans to reconfigure the site. Typically a reconfiguration without a change of use could be done by-right, however the property is a certified non=conforming use within the Prince George's Plaza Transit District. As a result, the applicant was required to submit a detailed site plan in order to make any changes to the site.

The applicant proposed four (4) additional gas bays to the site (for a total of 8). As part of the redevelopment, the applicant proposed the demolition of the existing convenience store structure and rebuilding it on the southern edge of the site. They plan to construct a two=story building, with a convenience market on the first floor and the company's management offices on the second floor. 

The Prince George's County Planning Board disapproved of the applicant's proposed new use in December 2019.

In March 2020, the District Council overturned the Planning Board's decision, approving the new use and corresponding detailed site plan. 

With their detailed site plan approved, the applicant will obtain the necessary permits before beginning construction.
