Cultural and lifestyle enrichment
Envisioned as the urban nucleus of a new live/work/play district, Konterra Town Center, comprehensively planned and smart-growth designed, will serve as the northern gateway to Prince George's County, Maryland and focal point on the Baltimore-Washington corridor.
The development is destined to be a catalyst for state and county economic progression; local, regional and national business advancement; and cultural and lifestyle enrichment. Sited within an active, pedestrian-oriented, animated environment including tree lined streets and public parks, the Town Center will also provide a lively gathering place for both local residents and those from the surrounding region. Thoughtful urban design guidelines allow for an architecturally diverse framework for over twelve million square feet of the office, hotel, retail, entertainment and a residential building.
Located on a remediated brownfield site, Konterra protects local watersheds and employs a comprehensive storm water management plan. Impervious areas are disconnected to increase site infiltration and high albedo materials reduce heat islands. The project is also looking for opportunities to use both geothermal and photovoltaic technologies commercially available to incorporate into the design.
