Silver Spring, Maryland
Torti Gallas and Partners is part of the SilverPlace, LLC team which was selected by the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPPC) to create a vibrant urban neighborhood integrating several mixed-use components into a contextually sensitive, economically viable, environmentally responsive, holistic urban scheme.
Home :: Neighborhoods
Included in the plan is a 120,000 gross square foot, state-of-the art, MNCPPC Headquarters Facility as a prominent component of the site. With three unique green roofs, energy efficient design, careful attention to building orientation, cutting edge day lighting techniques, and low energy consumption, the Headquarters Facility reflects forward thinking sustainable design while meeting or exceeding Silver LEED standards .
To complement and enhance the prominence of the Headquarters Facility, we have carefully placed it on the new 30,000 square foot plaza. The Plaza features an activated, pedestrian-oriented streetscape of shops and cafes within an environmentally sensitive urban landscape. The Plaza is designed to establish a strong connection to the adjacent renovated and enhanced Fairview Park, creating connectivity to the surrounding neighborhood and anchoring the project within the fabric of Silver Spring.
Our proposal includes a multifamily development which will meet a 30% affordable housing goal with 12.5% MPDUs and 17.5% dedicated as workforce housing. Additionally, we will meet or exceed LEED Certified standards for multifamily housing through efficient design and reduced energy consumption techniques.
