Inspiration on the Drawing Board: Atwell on Spring

This new mixed-use development is planned for the site of a 60-year-old Montgomery County office building. The development is part of a development agreement wherein this new residential and retail will be built following the construction of a new 12-story headquarters for the Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission, which currently occupies the space.

This building will be two six-story buildings connected below grade by structured parking. The development is planned as a transition from the adjacent single-family townhouse neighborhood and central business district. The development will feature a mews, a pedestrian street that will provide circulation within the building area and connection between adjacent districts.

Judges’ Comments | This is a compelling rendering in how it addresses the street and really draws you in. It embraces the curve of the road into the architectural design to enhance residents’ views. It also features interesting outdoor living components, such as the raised terrace, even with a potentially challenging site. Its street presence hides the rest of it so it doesn’t overpower the existing street. There are also rich common spaces inside. It makes the most out of potentially unused spaces to create little jewels throughout the development.
