The 60-acre Glenn Dale Hospital campus has been vacant for three decades now, and it looks like new plans for a conversion may bring it back to life. Washington Business Journal reported that the Redevelopment Authority of Prince George’s County hopes to redevelop the deteriorating site into a continuing care retirement community. This conversion could cost more than $100 million, but there is enough market demand that it could be worth it, according to Washington Business Journal. The site is capable of supporting over 300 units.
The Redevelopment Authority of Prince George’s County plans on carrying out a development agreement by August 2017.
The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It features 23 total buildings that first opened 1934. Washington Business Journal reported that the hospital treated children and adults with tuberculosis before extending to D.C. residents suffering from other chronic diseases. The campus was shut down in 1982.
