VIKA was contracted to complete civil engineering and surveying for this dramatic transformation of the former 24 acre Mid-Pike Plaza. When the project opened in 2014, it did so under the name of Pike & Rose, signaling its location at the corner of Rockville Pike and Montrose Parkway. The approved ultimate project is slated to include: 1.7 million SF of retail/office, and over 1,600 residential units.
The plan will create a vital mixed use, pedestrian- and-bike friendly, development, interspersed with public open spaces, in accordance with smart growth principals and the White Flint Sector Plan:
- Road diet that will sharply reduce traffic in the area
- Minimum parking
- Generous public green spaces
- Pedestrian plazas
- Large neighborhood green
- Residential, retail, office, and hotel uses
- ESD stormwater management practices
- Immediately adjacent to the White Flint Metro Station.
