At 220 E. Middle Lane in Rockville, Maryland, developer Foulger-Pratt is planning on constructing a 240,000-square-foot mixed-use project with 240 rentals and approximately 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. According to the Rockville Nights blog, the project is planned to “bridge the gap” between the Rockville Metro Plaza and Rockville Town Center.
Currently, the site houses a vacant parking lot that had previously been planned for office space. In the new plans, the residential units will vary with one-, two-, and three-bedroom units with rents starting at $1,000 per month.
This planned mid-rise building is part of the third phase of the Rockville Metro Plaza redevelopment, otherwise known as RMP III. Still, the concept is in the early stages, so it might undergo some changes in the coming months.
The first two phases of the Rockville Metro Plaza redevelopment focused on office space. For these phases, tenants secured included the Choice Hotels international headquarters and the Kabu Japanese Steakhouse, which will open this fall. No office tenants were secured for RMP III, which prompted the change to apartments.
Foulger-Pratt is expected to submit preliminary drawings to the City of Rockville by June 2. After this, the timeline for the project involves two years of planning and getting approvals followed by two years of construction. Delivery is expected by 2021.
