Innovation Corridor

Area Encompassed

The second transformative Plan 2035 recommendation is establishing an Innovation Corridor. It will consist of designated parts of:

  • Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC)
  • Berwyn Heights
  • College Park
  • Edmonston
  • Greenbelt
  • Hyattsville
  • Riverdale Park
  • University Park
  • U.S. 1 Corridor and around the University of Maryland

This area has the highest concentrations of economic activity in our four targeted industry clusters and has the greatest potential to catalyze future job growth, research, and innovation in the near- to mid-term. This area is also well positioned to capitalize on the synergies that derive from businesses, research institutions, and incubators locating in close proximity to one another and on existing and planned transportation investment, such as the Purple Line.
