More Praise For White Flint Projects


Published:

Development at White Flint won some more recognition earlier this week as one of seven projects to be honored at the first Maryland Sustainable Growth Awards in Annapolis. The Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission had Christopher Leinberger, author of a George Washington University study on Washington area walkable communities, speak about what he sees as the benefits of smart growth-oriented projects such as White Flint. The video above includes interviews with a Montgomery County planner and four of the biggest companies driving that transformation. The award was presented to "White Flint Sector Implementation Project," described by the Commission below: The White Flint Sector Plan set the stage for transforming a car-centric suburban shopping district known for its sea of parking lots and choking traffic into a dynamic mixed-use center featuring housing, shopping, public use space, and a favorable environment for walking and cycling. The White Flint Sector Plan area consists of 430 acres with approximately 160 acres as surface parking. Low-scale commercial development is the dominant use in the plan area. For example, Mid-Pike Plaza, a 300,000 square foot traditional one-level shopping center on 24 acres, has more than 19 acres as surface parking. Video via MarylandPlanning
