An Exciting Redevelopment Opportunity for Downtown Wheaton and Silver Spring
Announcing a Request for Proposals for a multiple site development and construction project involving the Wheaton and Silver Spring central business districts.
Issued by MONTGOMERY COUNTY GOVERNMENT
Montgomery County, in cooperation with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), through the County’s Department of Transportation (MCDOT), seeks a qualified developer team for a mixed-use development of up to four County and M-NCPPC sites. The objective of this Request for Proposal (RFP) will be the construction of a government office building, a town square, public parking, as well as the private development of mixed-used, high quality, transit-oriented development within the Wheaton and Silver Spring Central Business Districts. This development will be consistent with the County’s objectives of increased density, mixed-use, and appropriate levels of affordable housing.
Development of these properties in the two Central Business Districts is inter-related. Upon completion of a government office building in Wheaton, the M-NCPPC (MRO), currently situated in downtown Silver Spring at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Spring Street, will relocate to Wheaton. Development of the MRO site in Silver Spring will be contingent upon the issuance of a use and occupancy permit for the office building in Wheaton. Development of the MRO site in Silver Spring may commence following the issuance of the use and occupancy permit for the office building in Wheaton. However, proposals that meet the County’s objectives need not include all four sites in order to be considered.
