Takoma Park Recreation Center Development Project

About the Recreation Center Development Project

The City of Takoma Park Maryland issued a solicitation for letters of interest from firms or development teams wishing to partner with the City in the redevelopment of an existing recreational facility, the Takoma Park Recreation Center.  The primary objective of this effort is to enter into a public/private partnership to expand and enhance the recreational opportunities currently available to the community while advancing the City’s affordable housing and economic development goals. The solicitation was closed on May 22, 2017.

Current Project Status

Letters of interest were received from five development teams in response to the City’s solicitation: Brandstetter Carroll, Inc., Coalition Homes and The Orlo Fund, Community Preservation Development Corporation (CPDC), Mission First Housing Development Corporation, and Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP). The submissions can be found in the Notes & Links section.

An initial review of the submissions was conducted by staff and their findings presented to the City Council on June 21, 2017.

On July 12, four of the development teams met with the City Council to provide information on their qualifications and interest in partnering with the City on this project.  The presentations can found in the Notes & Links section.

The proposed project and the selection of a potential development partner was discussed by the Council on Wednesday, July 26, 2017. The discussion is expected to continue later this fall when the Council returns from its summer recess.

No formal action has been taken by the Council at this time.
