The Boulevard at the Capital Centre was an open-air shopping center in the Lake Arbor census-designated place, in unincorporated Prince George's County, Maryland; it had a Landover postal address.[2][3] It was located on the site of the former Capital Centre, the former home of the Washington Bullets and Washington Capitals.

Opened in 2003, the Boulevard at the Capital Centre is next to the Largo Town Center Washington Metro station (the eastern terminus of the Blue and Silver Lines); the facility had more than 70 establishments. It was formerly the home of short-lived chain restaurant Gladys Knight & Ron Winans' Chicken & Waffles. In November 2017, the shopping center closed to build the brand new Prince George's hospital center. In addition there will be new luxury apartments, restaurants and a shopping center built; the surviving businesses are Chick-Fil-A, TGI Friday's, Carolina Kitchen, The Magic Johnson Theater, Phoenix Salon, Longhorn Steakhouse and Golden Corral. Ongoing construction may cause some of the remaining businesses to close; the area will be known as Downtown Largo once completed. Phase One of construction is expected to be finished not later than Spring 2021.

In July 2019, demolition of 290,000 square feet of retail space to make way for Carillon, a new lifestyle-oriented mixed-use development on the same site.[4]
