Parking Lots to Places

The Urban Design Guidelines for Rock Spring and White Flint 2 Sector Plans will be used to guide the transformation of the Plan areas by providing recommendations for the design of buildings, streets and public spaces. They build on the recommendations in the two Sector Plans, which were approved and adopted in late 2017 and early 2018. These guidelines aim to deliver high quality buildings and spaces as well as streets with ample pedestrian comfort and multi-modal connectivity.
