provides for the expansion of the existing Silver Spring Transit
Facility into a large, multi-modal transit center that will serve as a
vital part of Silver Spring revitalization initiative. The eight acre
site will be developed to accommodate a multi-level, pedestrian
friendly complex supporting rail traffic (Metro and MARC), bus traffic
(local and inter-city) and automobile traffic (taxi service and Kiss
and Ride). Major features include doubling the number of bus bays, a
4,500 square feet inter-city bus building, and extensive provisions for
safe pedestrian and vehicular traffic movement under a landmark canopy.
Hiker/Biker trail enhancements and retail space are also included in
the design concept.
project will provide the Silver Spring
community with a new library located within the CBD. The new library
will be approximately 63,000 gross square feet in size and is intended
to meet the unique requirements of an increasingly urban, ethnically
and culturally diverse residential and business community. A site
selection committee was formed in January of 2001 to recommend a
potential site that meets an established set of criteria. The CIP
includes planning and construction money for this project. Montgomery
County has prepared an RFP to solicit interest from developers
interested in constructing a residential project adjacent to
future library. The project will also include an art gallery and
offices for the Department of Health and Human Services. The project
will be a LEED Silver
building. The State has also expressed
an interest in incorporating a Purple Line station into this project.
Silver Spring Civic Building will become the center of community
activities in Silver Spring. A large Great Hall will be available for
banquets, performances and other meetings and presentations. There will
be four other community use rooms including a gallery space. The Silver
Spring Regional Center will be located in the upper floor of the Civic
Building. Round House Theatre School will be located in the lower level
of the Civic Building.
