ECHO Realty, LP Purchased 3.5 Acres At University Town Center, Hyattsville, MD

LEASE SIGNED FOR A 55,000 SF SAFEWAY

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ECHO Realty, LP is pleased to announce its January 3, 2014 purchase of a 3.5 acre parcel of land located at the northeast corner of East-West Highway (Maryland Route 410) and America Boulevard, at University Town Center (UTC), in Hyattsville, Prince George's County, Maryland.  ECHO's development plan for the property includes 82,000 square feet of retail and office space on two levels.  A lease with Safeway has been executed for a 55,000 square foot supermarket, and leases are out for signature for half of the remaining space in the project.  There will be provisions for nearly 300 parking spaces, with 75 spaces at grade and 225 spaces atop Safeway's building.  Detailed site plan approval has been achieved with Prince George's County; final design and construction documents are now being completed and contractor bidding will occur in late February/early March. Site work is tentatively scheduled to commence during the second quarter of 2014 and the entire development will open for business in the third quarter of 2015.  The complementary (to Safeway) retail space will line America Boulevard, north of East-West Highway, and will join the existing street retail program leading to the entry to Regal Cinema.  ECHO is joined by the Bernstein Companies of Washington as a limited partner in this enterprise.  Bernstein is actively and separately engaged as an owner of several other components of the University Town Center mixed-use program.   

ECHO's new development will be at the "front door" of UTC which comprises over 1.5 million square feet of office, two residential condominium towers, one 900-bed student housing tower (the University of Maryland is one mile north of UTC), and approximately 125,000 square feet of retail space anchored by a 67,500 square foot, stadium-seating, Regal Cinema.  Immediately adjacent to UTC is the 1.1 million square foot Mall at Prince George's (anchored by Macy's, JC Penney, Target, Marshalls, Ross, TJ Maxx, and Old Navy), and the very busy Prince George's Plaza Metro station.  Additionally, Post Properties, Equity Residential, and the Gudelsky Group have each recently completed or are presently under construction with major residential community developments within 5 minute walking distance of the acquired real estate.

ECHO Realty is a privately held developer and owner of grocery anchored shopping centers with offices in Pittsburgh, PA, Washington, D.C. and Indianapolis, IN.  ECHO's portfolio consists of over 175 properties located in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia and Florida.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer.

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
