Bullock tapped to spearhead $9B project
The Andrews Business and Community Alliance has hired a director to bring the ‘‘mega” development vision into focus for the corridor surrounding Andrews Air Force base in Camp Springs.
Retired Air Force Major and former BRAC coordinator for Arlington County Economic Development, Anita C. Bullock, will begin meeting with community stakeholders and appropriate governmental agencies to develop the area’s envisioned defense and technology corridor, a development estimated to cost $9 billion.
The development model includes 7 million square feet of office and retail space, 15,000 residential units and six new public schools.
Bullock has an extensive background in civil engineering. She led the strategic planning team at Andrews Air Force Base and authored the current 20-year development plan for the installation, winning the Best Federal Project Award for 2005 from the Federal Planning Division, according to the Alliance.
Bullock’s appointment is ‘‘A terrific coup, both for the Alliance and for the communities of Prince George’s County that border Andrews Air Force Base,” said M.H. Jim Estepp, President & CEO of the Allliance and the Greater Prince George’s Roundtable.”This is just the first step toward realizing the vision we set forth for this community four months ago.”
The Roundtable and Alliance are nonprofit organizations whose activities include advocating for county businesses and communities.
