White Flint 2 Sector Plan

White Flint Sector Plan Area mapPlanners are beginning work on a new sector plan between White Flint and the City of Rockville. The Sector Plan will update a portion of the 1992 North Bethesda/Garrett Park Master Plan and will build upon the recommendations from the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan.

The plan will fill in land use and zoning recommendations between White Flint and Rockville and build upon the vision developed in the White Flint Sector Plan to improve Rockville Pike.

Background

The White Flint 2 Sector Plan area covers approximately 290 acres in a horseshoe shape on either side of Rockville Pike (MD 355). The plan area includes office buildings along Executive Boulevard, west of Hoya Street; Montrose Crossing Shopping Center and Pike Center along Rockville Pike; light-industrial and commercial properties along Parklawn Drive, south of Randolph Road; office uses along Executive Boulevard; and Randolph Hills Shopping Center and other light-industrial uses along Parklawn Drive.

The White Flint 2 plan will:

  • Georgetowne ParkRecommend land uses to promote new mixed use development in an area where a mix of uses is now limited or prohibited.
  • Analyze a segment of Rockville Pike that will contribute to its transformation into an urban boulevard
  • Link both vehicular and bikeway transportation networks from White Flint to the Rockville city line, including rapid transit options
  • Consider how to link both sides of the CSX tracks at the proposed MARC station.

Issues

The White Flint 2 Sector Plan will address issues related to growth and development, including:

  • What level of new development can the transportation network support?
  • How should Rockville Pike (MD 355) between the city and County be coordinated and designed?
  • What transportation policies should be introduced or amended?
  • Should the White Flint Special Tax District encompass White Flint Phase 2?
  • How can uses on both sides of the MARC station and CSX tracks be integrated?
  • What is the role of the proposed MARC station and how should nearby properties outside of White Flint Phase I develop?

Project Schedule
