OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County shoppers could soon have a new outlet mall.

A developer has proposed building a mall for high-end outlet stores as part of the National Harbor development. The mall could open as soon as 2013 providing county shoppers a retail option in an area where many have complained there are few.

The $4 billion waterfront complex already has condominiums, stores, restaurants and hotels lining the Potomac River near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.

Milton Peterson, chairman of the Peterson Cos., which opened National Harbor in 2008, says the addition is a significant milestone in the project’s development.

    “Where many have complained there are few.” WOW, well I encourage everyone that feels that way to look at “Blvd at Cap Centre.” That was one of the most eagerly anticipated retail projects in PG County, when it opened in 2002. Now most of it is completely empty or filled with junk stores. WHY? Well because crime is out of control there. Just like Landover Mall, Laurel Mall….Security Square….Harborplace….etc.

    Outlet mall = lower class= Blacks. Goodbye National Harbor, Hello Coonsville.

    Oh my goodness!!! Comments above are clearly from individuals that prefer status quo. The National Harbor is booming and the addition of shopping will only enhance the area.

    Happy Harry – you should be ashamed of yourself. You could not be as happy as you profess. May God bless you with patience, tolerance and access to the average black (good people with families, friends, careers and dreams) just like you.

    Oh, and I don’t recall Blvd at Cap Ctr ever having anything worthy of my visit. Nor did Landover Mall post 80’s.
