Takoma Junction Redevelopment
Following a solicitation and evaluation process, the City Council selected Neighborhood Development Company (NDC) to redevelop the Takoma Junction City-owned parking lot. The Development Agreement (2016) establishes the framework for the project. On July 25, 2018, the City Council endorsed NDC’s Draft Combined Plan, adopting Resolution 2018-41 authorizing the firm to proceed to the next phase of the development process.
The City’s goals are for the project to act as a stimulus to the commercial district and locally-owned, independent businesses; improve the aesthetic appeal of the district; and be contextually sensitive and environmentally sustainable.
