The Viva White Oak project is a public-private partnership between the County and Global LifeSci Development Corporation (GLDC), an affiliate of Percontee, Inc., to redevelop 280 acres in the eastern portion of the County into a bioscience-focused mixed-use community. The 110 acres owned by the County on Industrial Parkway (Site 2) will be redeveloped in conjunction with the adjacent 170 acres owned by GLDC as one, comprehensive and coordinated community per the White Oak Science Gateway Master Plan approved by County Council in 2014. The Master Plan establishes a vision for transforming what has been an industrial area into a denser, mixed-use commercial and residential center in which people can walk to work, shops, and transit.

Redevelopment of the property will strive to create a unique hub that will capitalize on the surrounding and nearby regulatory, higher education, and medical resources and create a synergy of activities that will result in a world-class bio/life sciences education and research community. The County is partnering with GLDC to stimulate continuous interaction among a broad range of technology companies, academic institutions, regulators and business support services in a campus-like setting. The land use mix will reflect the County’s policy to encourage employment, community revitalization, and economic development with an anticipated focus on the biomedical and biotechnology industries and the innovation economy. The project will contain a balanced mix of commercial and residential uses, as intended in the White Oak Science Gateway Master Plan and zoning.
