Project: The Mall in Columbia
The Mall in Columbia in Howard County, Maryland continues to be a premier shopping destination in the Baltimore/ Washington metropolitan area. The Lifestyle Expansion is a 75,000 sq ft open mall addition that includes new restaurant and retail spaces along a landscaped promenade connecting the west side of the existing mall to pedestrian public spaces. The expansion provides a continuous east to west connection through the mall to adjacent mixed-use neighborhoods and amenities for both visitors and nearby residents. Sustainability has been carefully incorporated into the design, particularly with water efficient landscaping and storm water management, water use reduction, and optimal energy performance standards. Selected building materials compliment the surrounding environment as well as the landscape of adjacent amenity spaces.
