Theme 2: Commercial Downtown

Silver Spring CBD Sector Plan

Transit-oriented downtown imageHighlights

Silver Spring's location, infrastructure, and position in the metropolitan area market will continue its role as an employment center. A mix of office, retail, entertainment and restaurant uses will combine with housing and civic uses to activate the downtown. Focusing commercial development in the CBD is consistent with the State's Smart Growth policy and lessens the potential for commercial intrusion into the surrounding neighborhoods.
