The University of Maryland invites campus community members, residents of College Park, and surrounding communities to an East Campus open house on Thursday, June 19.
The University’s development partner, Foulger-Pratt/Argo, will present images and renderings of the various elevations, public spaces and architectural guidelines for the planned development. These renderings are the result of several months’ work with the University’s Architectural Design Standard Board and the East Campus Steering Committee.
An opportunity for questions and answers will follow the presentation.
More information about the event is available on the East Campus website.
The University of Maryland’s East Campus site is comprised of approximately 38 acres bounded by Route 1 to the west, Paint Branch Parkway to the north, and the City of College Park to the south. Preliminary plans for the site include relocation of the university’s existing administrative facilities, followed by construction of more than 2 million square feet of graduate housing, market rate housing, office space and retail amenities.
The University is developing its East Campus to create an environment that will attract high-quality mixed-use development to the Route 1 corridor, offer additional housing for graduate students, promote connections and partnerships with the City of College Park as part of the university’s Master Plan, and provide a significantly enhanced campus setting to attract the best students and exceptional faculty to the university.
