Working with Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission–Prince George’s County, Cunningham | Quill Architects designed a new mixed-use development plan for the City of Mount Rainier. In an effort to facilitate and develop a community-supported vision founded on current and projected economic and market analysis, the team initiated the design process with site tours, interviews, and stakeholder meetings. A series of community meetings and charrette workshops were conducted to ensure public participation and involvement.
The final plan includes implementation strategies, draft form-based code, design guidelines, and recommendations for transportation, land use, and sustainable infrastructure. The Mount Rainier Mixed-Use Town Center Development Plan envisions the City as a vital, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use town center with special focus on the city’s artistic, historic, and environmental traditions.
