Thanks to Preservation Maryland’s involvement, active efforts to breathe new life in to the long vacant Glenn Dale Hospital in Prince George’s County have taken a major step forward with the selection of a qualified team from The Alexander Company to complete a redevelopment feasibility study.
Situated on a wooded campus of over 200 acres in Prince George’s County, the majority of the two dozen Georgian Revival buildings of the Glenn Dale Tuberculosis Hospital and Sanatorium date from the 1930s. Once the area’s largest employer, Glenn Dale hospital was closed in 1981. Vacant since, and a bit of a white elephant, strong community efforts have pushed this project along to rehabilitation and reuse.

Six-to-Fix Update: New Project Website for Glenn Dale Hospital
The Alexander Company is currently engaged by the Prince George’s Redevelopment Authority to assess the feasibility of redeveloping the 23-building and 60-acre campus as a retirement and adult care community. The feasibility study is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2018. A previous structural report declaring the properties stable was completed by Beyer Blinder Belle in 2016.
