UMD Forges Ahead With East Campus – Begins to Court New Developers

East Campus Concept - Massing
UMD issued a new phased East Campus Request for Proposal (RFP) Wednesday and will select a developer for Phase I of the project by the end of July. With $5 million in hand to begin relocating their facilities on East Campus to the former Washington Post plant, UMD appears to be forging ahead with a realistic phased implementation plan that takes into account difficult economic conditions. The proposed full build-out of the site plan remains substantially the same (aerial rendering) as the one developed over the course of the past couple years…. although it is subject to further changes to be worked out between the selected developer, UMD, the City and County.

  1. I got a chuckle out of the “Steam Plant” building. I assume it’s a blazing reference to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

  2. The power plant and the oil storage tanks were the two structures that had to stay put. It does put you in mind of the Ball’mer power plant.
