NEW CARROLLTON, Md. — Gov. Martin O’Malley is announcing the approval of a lease to move the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development headquarters to Prince George’s County.

A new building will be constructed for the agency as part of a new transit-oriented development by Berman Enterprises at the New Carrollton Metro station. The development will initially include 500 new residential units and retail space. It will eventually include 2,400 residential units, a hotel and more retail space.

The Board of Public Works approved the lease Wednesday.

In a statement, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says the project is a commitment to strengthening Prince George’s County.

The agency’s move from Anne Arundel County will bring Prince George’s its first state agency. The move is expected to be complete by June 2015.
