Hyattsville CDC is making strides towards the completion of our new offices and the rehabilitation of 4314 Farragut Street! A new roof has been installed, complemented by improvements to the masonry on the outside of the building, new windows are forthcoming, and the basement will soon be waterproof!
Once the location of the first Cable TV franchise in Prince George’s County and Storer Cable, the Hyattsville CDC is repurposing this 2-story bungalow to serve Hyattsville and the Gateway Arts District’s revitalization goals. The property will house the CDC’s programs, the Creative Edge Studio of Prince George’s County, and one artist-in-residence.
Additionally, you may have seen us outside working with volunteers from the University of Maryland Scholars program and the Fulbright Scholarship Program to transform a decommissioned satellite dish existing on the property into a piece of public art. Designed by local artist Alan Binstock, the completed dish will be a magnificent addition to the property!
Thanks to volunteers and funding from organizations like the Prince George’s Arts & Humanities Council, the Bank of America Charitable Trust, the Redevelopment Authority of Prince Georges County and Comcast of Maryland we are able to transform this historic property into a community resource. Would you like to be involved? Let us know by emailing Kayleigh Gunnoud, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
