After nine years, Cross Creek Club - the golf-course community that sprawls across the Montgomery County/Prince George's County line - will finally be sold out. You could call the sale of its last house (sometime this month, we assume) to be a marker of sorts - the end of large-scale greenfield (formerly vacant land) development in East County.
The future of East County will be redevelopment - recycling our current shopping centers, industrial sites and the remaining family farms into something new. To better show the wave of new development that will take place in our area in the years to come, check out Just Up The Pike's new "Developments Up The Pike" Google map. This frequently-updated map will show you what's being built or is in planning in East County. As you can see, there's a lot more going on that you might expect. But is it a boom? It's hard to say.
