Friendship Heights, MD
Working with the project architects, CRJA-IBI Group developed a comprehensive master plan and detailed site designs for Wisconsin Place, an urban mixed use development project.
The eight-acre project, built over parking, includes a development mix of retail, office, and residential spaces, a community center, underground parking, two public parks, extensively landscaped public plazas, streetscapes, and commissioned public art. The development builds on the site’s reputation as a major retail destination, Metro stop, and surface transportation hub. The plan evolved over several years through a collaborative dialogue with Montgomery County citizens and public agencies, as well as development teams for adjacent urban development projects. This project was phased and now enhances the economic vitality of an already-vibrant urban area, contributes significantly to the County open space system, and sets new urban development standards for Montgomery County.
