Mixed use in Silver Spring, Md.

By: Jonathan Groner
Redevelopment in Silver Spring, Md., is continuing and moving north. The other day, it was announced that The Bozzuto Group, a Baltimore developer, will build a mixed-use project in downtown Silver Spring on the corner of Georgia Avenue and Spring Street. This is about two blocks north of the existing massive redevelopment of downtown Silver Spring.

The site is a 3.24-acre location that now houses the offices of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Bozzuto will be partnering with Spaulding and Slye Investments and Harrison Development on the project, to be called SilverPlace. Groundbreaking is scheduled for 2008, and occupancy of the new Park and Planning Commission headquarters could begin in 2010.

The project will include 358 residential units, including affordable housing units; retail space; a nine-story, 120,000-square-foot headquarters for the commission; a 150,000-square-foot office building; and a public plaza.

So far, so good. It doesn't look as if Silver Spring is near the point of being overbuilt.
