Queen Anne Academic Center
The existing Queen Anne Fine Arts Center at Prince George’s Community College is in the process of design for a major addition and renovation that will transform it into the Queen Anne Academic Center. The renovation of 33,455 GSF of space built in 1968 and the addition of 136,545 GSF of new space will result in a state of the art, LEED Gold certified building that will allow the college to expand many of their existing performing arts programs and to create several more. Technical labs, a recital hall, two theaters, dance studios, and classrooms will be added, the existing theater will be renewed, and spaces for music, television, film, and radio will be expanded and consolidated from their current locations scattered throughout the campus. In the process, deteriorated infrastructure will be replaced and existing ADA issues will be corrected. In addition, all finishes and equipment will be modernized.
