Description

This program provides for the planning and development coordination activities by the County necessary to implement the redevelopment of the 110-acre previously County-owned parcel on Industrial Parkway in White Oak (Site II). The site will be redeveloped in conjunction with the adjacent 170-acre parcel in a public-private partnership as one, comprehensive and coordinated 280-acre bioscience-focused mixed-use community per the approved White Oak Science Gateway (WOSG) Master Plan. The project includes $40 million to assist with the funding needed to construct master-planned roads A-106, B-5 and improvements to FDA Boulevard. Additionally, funds for demolition of existing structures and site clearing activities, as well as costs for County staff to coordinate multiple activities, are included in the project.

Justification

In 2014, the Montgomery County Council approved the new White Oak Science Gateway Master Plan. The Plan establishes a vision for transforming what has been an industrial area into a denser, mixed-use commercial and residential center in which people can walk to work, shops, and transit. The County's initiative includes using both previously County-owned property (Site II) and privately-owned property as a public-private partnership and leveraging existing relationships with the adjacent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) campus to advance development activities in the Master Plan. Specialized services are required for the complex land assemblage and disposition actions associated with implementation of Stage I development requirements. Staff time and services are required to manage and coordinate efforts to develop detailed staging plans, manage demolition and clean-up activities, design infrastructure, and to negotiate transactions with development partners. The proposed 280-acre development is large-scale, long-term and transformational. It will be a catalyst for desired revitalization and redevelopment in the White Oak sector area and elsewhere in the Eastern portion of Montgomery County. The project will create job opportunities throughout White Oak and the Eastern portion of Montgomery County and will expand the tax base.
