Six West — originally called “Airport City” — will offer a mix of uses once complete: 2.3 million square feet of office, six hotels, and other amenities, 550,000 square feet of commercial space, 260 multi-family units, 100 single-family units, and 120 townhomes.

The project’s first phase is expected to bring one of the six planned hotels and some of the apartments, and would open in late-2025 or even early-2026. The multi-phased project in its entirety would take nearly 15 to 20 years to complete, likely finishing sometime between 2035 and 2040.

Thursday’s event was Emceed by Shannon James, president and CEO of the Aerotropolis Alliance. There were also remarks from City officials, development partners, and others. Officials briefly removed their masks to commemorate the moment the ground was ceremonially broken. Six West is being developed by the City’s business and industrial development authority, Clearly College Park, with public-private partnerships, and will be located between Camp Creek Parkway, McDonald Avenue, and Princeton Avenue.

  1. There are some people on the right that don’t look that engaged.
    C’mon y’all dig in!
    And if you don’t feel like doing that, at least look cute and sexy like the woman on the far left…

  2. This will be great if College Park will keep it cleaner than they keep their part of Old National Hwy. Trash is everywhere in front of the businesses.

  3. As a lifelong (and current) College Park resident, I’m interested to see where this goes, and if we do it in an inclusive, progressive, sustainable way. Watching closely, and with excitement.
