Request for Development Proposals

East County Regional Services Center


Montgomery County, through this Request for Development Proposals (RFDP), seeks creative,viable development proposals from qualified teams for development of senior residential housing on County-owned property located at 3300 Briggs Chaney Road, Silver Spring,Maryland. The 16.4-acre site is currently improved with the East County Regional Services Center (ECRSC), the East County Community Center, the Briggs Chaney Park and Ride, and associated surface parking. The surface parking currently is underutilized and the County is seeking to redevelop the site with a more intensive use and to promote the County’s goal of the provision of senior housing.
The facilities, programs, and services hous
ed at this site are essential to the delivery of County government services in the East County. In this RFDP, it is the County’s expectation that the services and uses currently provided by these facilities continue. That stated, the County is open to creative development concepts which may utilize reconfiguration or redevelopment of some of these facilities to advance the objective of increasing the site’s utility and the senior housing stock in the East County.

Through a long-term lease, land sale, or other scenario proposed by Offerors, the County is seeking development proposals (“Proposals”) for the site that will achieve the following objectives:

  1. Utilize County assets to advance the quality of life for its residents;
  2. Increase the utility of the ECRSC site concurrent with increasing the senior housing stock in the East County;
  3. Assist in promoting residential development proximate to public transit; and
  4. Maintain the current services provided at the ECRSC site with their required parking.
