Awards Featured Item Maryland Master Planning Mixed Use

Merriweather District

Project: Merriweather District
Client: Howard Hughes Corporation

The Merriweather District is a vibrant live-work community on a 68-acre piece of land in Downtown Columbia, Maryland. Located adjacent to Merriweather Post Pavilion, the mixed-use development 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. Master planning design 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 tie the area together and connect to other areas of Downtown Columbia, including a natural conservation area. Merriweather District is the first LEED Neighborhood Development v4 in Maryland and only the second development to achieve it on the East Coast.
