Congratulations to MRED students Adam Stone, Patrick Bloomfield, Eric Walter, and Colin Wattleworth
, along with their team collaborators from Landscape Architecture (Kameron Aroom, Zoe Clarkwest, Joyce Kelley
) and Historic Preservation (Gilbert Mbeng, Rebecca Lueg, Margaret Prest, Lauren Schiszik
) for successfully presenting their interdisciplinary Crossroads Market Square
and the Heart of Bladensburg Redevelopment and Design Proposals
to the Bladensburg Town Council on March 1st, 2011. The students presented the finance, urban design, transportation and environmental elements of their redevelopment proposals for the Town Council's consideration. Each of the plans included affordable housing, retail amenities and services, economic development, pedestrian connectivity, and historic restoration options. Unlike many plans that have been completed for Bladensburg, both plans and the individual real estate projects provided realistic financing options to implement the innovative concepts.
