Reimagining Rock Spring
Rock Spring is generally bordered by I-270 to the north, Westlake Drive to the west, Democracy Boulevard to the south and Old Georgetown Road¬†to the east.¬† Local roads through the area¬†include Rock Spring Drive, Rockledge Drive, and Fernwood Road.
Rock Spring Park is part of the North Bethesda/Potomac office submarket. It accounts for 48 percent of office inventory in North Bethesda and 7 percent of office space Countywide.¬†The Rock Spring¬†Sector Plan focuses on the challenges of a typical suburban office park with an automotive-oriented street network, large parking garages, and surface parking spaces. The Plan examines opportunities for enhanced public use spaces and amenities; residential and non-residential uses; sustainable environmental measures; infrastructure needs for the area; and linkages to the proposed transitway along a central spine.
