New and Expanding Projects
Army Reserves Center
The Army Reserves Center is a 90,000-square-foot project that consolidates three existing Maryland Army Reserves locations on a 15-acre campus. Used for Army Reserves training and day-to-day activities, it also houses a vehicle maintenance shop and a recruitment and retention office. The Reserves Center will create 60 to 70 full-time jobs and stimulate spending at hotels, restaurants, and retail establishments.
CPV St. Charles Energy Center
CPV St. Charles is the County's largest economic development project in decades. This innovative facility is one of the cleanest natural gas-fired power plants in the nation, generating enough electricity to power roughly 700,000 homes. This $750 million dollar project resulted in 400 construction jobs and 22 permanent jobs.
Located four miles east of Indian Head's central business district, the Maryland Airport is the closest airport to Washington, DC that can accommodate corporate and private jets without TSA presence. The airport's master plan aims to extend its current 3,800-foot paved runway to a 4,300-foot-by-75-foot asphalt runway. Adjacent lands are currently subject to rezoning from Watershed Conservation District to a commercial district that will permit complementary use.
MedStar Shah Medical Group
The MedStar Shah Medical Group is planning to develop two ambulatory medical office buildings in Charles County to house their expanding operations. The main building will be a 51,000-square-foot, three-story facility that will replace an existing building at 10 Saint Patrick’s Drive in Waldorf. The second building will be a new 20,000-square-foot facility to be constructed in the Waldorf Technology Center at Berry Road and U.S. 301.
St. Charles Communities
St. Charles is a 9,100-acre master-planned community that blends office, retail, industrial, and residential community development.
St. Charles includes 3.3-million-square-feet of retail, office, and industrial space on approximately 1,000 acres. Most of the industrial buildings are located in four business parks comprising over 1.5-million-square-feet of industrial space.
St. Charles is comprised of five villages and is approved for nearly 25,000 residential units. Lennar Corporation, the country's second largest homebuilder, will develop 2,400 acres of land for up to 7,000 entitled residential home sites.
Waldorf Station is an open air, mixed-use development located at the intersection of US Route 301 and Maryland Route 5. Once complete, Waldorf Station will feature
500,000-square-feet of commercial and retail space, 700 town homes, and 100 apartments that blend entertainment and easy living.
A significant roadway extension approved by the Charles County Board of Commissioners for Waldorf Station will allow for seamless ease of access.
Waldorf Technology Center
The Waldorf Technology Center is a 64-acre mixed use development that presently accommodates a 98-suite Residence Inn and a 35,000=square-foot flex building. An additional 20,000-square-foot medical office building is proposed as well as a 250-unit apartment complex, which is a permitted use in the MX Zone where Waldorf Technology Center is located.
Waldorf Urban Redevelopment Corridor
The Waldorf Urban Redevelopment Corridor (WURC) project will transform the Old Washington Road corridor of downtown Waldorf into a transit-oriented, mixed-use urban center. After more than a decade of planning, Phase One engineering for the project is underway. The WURC aims to deliver a high quality of life, new housing choices, efficient transit, and enhanced economic opportunities.

The White Plains Corporate Center
The White Plains Corporate Center office park features some of the highest quality office space in the County. Born of a public private partnership, the center houses five buildings with desirable amenities.
The fifth building is a new $10 million dollar, Class-A office building, designed with features appealing to health service providers, a key industry within the County.
The new 60,000-square-foot, three-story office building is among the largest office buildings in the County and is the first solar-powered Class A building in Southern Maryland. While spaces in the corporate center are in great demand, the business park has a shovel-ready site for a one-story building, up to 24,000-square-feet in size.
