College Park, an attractive suburb of Washington, DC, was incorporated in 1945. The town's original 125-acre tract of land was divided into a grid-pattern of streets with long, narrow lots measuring 50 feet by 200 feet. Many homes and commercial buildings were subsequently built as many entrepreneur and company teams left the crowded hustle and bustle of DC. As the college community also expanded, more residential and commercial building took place. Commercial land development rapidly increased in the 1920s as the college campuses continued to grow.
Since then, both commercial and residential property development has continued in College Park. Recent projects include both large modern office complexes and such residential projects as The University View, the Landmark Apartments and the Northgate Condos. Major companies, government offices and education institutions in this locale are the University of Maryland, the National Archives and Records Administration, the FDA, Hyundai, The Home Depot and IKEA. Popular restaurants in town include Martin's Crosswinds for excellent seafood, Old Maryland Grill and Logan Tavern, and The 9:30 Club is a leading concert and nightclub venue.
College Park Airport is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the oldest operating airport in the U.S. and one of the oldest in the world, operating continuously since 1909. At this airport, Wilbur Wright trained young pilots. Commercial airports in the area are the Baltimore-Washington International Airport, Reagan National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. Main highways are I-495 and I-95, which intersect at the College Park Interchange.
