Project: Merriweather District
Client: Howard Hughes
The Merriweather District is a vibrant live/work community on a 68 acre piece of land in Downtown Columbia. Located adjacent to Merriweather Post Pavillion, the project encompasses a full build out with over 750 residential units, approximately 1.2 million sq ft of office and 185,000 sq ft of retail shops and restaurants on about 22 acres. Project components are centered around an active public park that will act as the district's center for activities including concerts, outdoor dining, ice skating, and other civic programming. Paths and walkways will tie the area together and connect to other areas of Downtown Columbia, including a natural conservation area. The district is the first LEED Neighborhood Development v4 in Maryland and only the second development to achieve it on the East Coast.
