A new proposed project in the White Flint area could bring more than 2.5 million square feet of new development and 2,063 residences in eight buildings, according to Montgomery County Planning Board documents.

The project, called “Rose Village,” was submitted by Washington Science Joint Ventures, and would be built along Montrose Parkway.

Included in the initial project plans is up to 2.1 million square feet of residential development and 415,484 square feet of commercial development.

The goal of the project is to “transform the property … into a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood for the creation of an urban node,” the development application says.

Seven of the eight proposed buildings would be mixed-use with ground-floor retail. One building would only have residences.

About 15% of the proposed 2,063 units (309 units) would be designated as affordable housing.

The buildings would range in height from about 130 to 200 feet tall.

A one-acre “civic green” is proposed for “gathering, recreation and outdoor events to allow for a range of experiences,” documents say.

Plans include nearly 3,000 parking spaces in both structured garages and surface lots.

On the property now are office buildings (at 6001, 6003 and 6011 Executive Blvd.), surface parking lots and open laws, according to Planning Board documents. Two existing buildings on the site would “maintain” about 375,000 square feet of office space, the plans say.
