Amazon May Build New Distribution Warehouse at Westphalia Town Center in Upper Marlboro, MD

The biggest news in Upper Marlboro in recent days is the possibility of Amazon building a sprawling 4 million-square-foot warehouse at the Westphalia Town Center in Upper Marlboro, MD.  A big open field (pictured) currently sits alongside Pennsylvania Ave (Route 4) near the Woodyard Rd. exit.

Last week, the Prince George’s County Planning Board approved a zoning change to Westphalia’s development plan. This change added a “merchandise logistics center” as a facility where goods and products are received, sorted, packed and stored for the purpose of distribution to parcel carriers or delivery directly to a customer. That sounds like it was tailored to Amazon's operations.

The site was marketed not just for residential, but for multi-use as well.  Retail shops, office space, and green open areas will be smaller if Amazon gets approved by the Prince George's County Planning board to build.  

Some residents of Westphalia have already voiced their concerns opposing the new facility and have begun a petition. They don’t want increased traffic and pollution which may drive home prices down.  They want what the developer promised……..shops, restaurants, office space, and green space in addition to the residential area, not a massive merchandise logistics center (warehouse distribution center).

Recent townhome sales in Westphalia have peaked to a maximum of up to $470K for a 4 bedroom unit with the median sale for a 3 bedroom at $365K. One might ask if the average Amazon worker will be able to afford to live in the Westphalia neighborhood he or she would be working in?
