Gateway Community Development Corporation drives economic revitalization along the U.S. Route 1 Corridor through business and neighborhood development initiatives including promotion of the arts as a community building strategy. Gateway CDC works within the communities of Brentwood, North Brentwood and Mount Rainier, MD and in collaboration with multiple partners to ensure the success of the entire Gateway Arts District. Gateway CDC is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in North Brentwood, Prince George's County, Maryland.


The Gateway CDC envisions the Gateway Arts District as the heart of Prince George's County's arts beat. The CDC will work to make this vision happen, and ensure that the Arts District is lively, walkable, and bikeable, where people of all ages and backgrounds are shopping in local stores, eating at cafés and restaurants, and enjoying arts and entertainment venues. We are determined to make sure the Arts District will be recognized as the national model of a successful creative economy.
