Strathmore on Tuesday revealed some interior renderings of its new AMP concert venue set for the Pike & Rose development in White Flint/North Bethesda.
The renderings show a lounge and stage, plus a potential set up for a private event. AMP will open to event rentals this fall and will open for live concerts in March 2015.
The 250-seat music venue is situated in the main commercial building of the first phase of developer Federal Realty’s Pike & Rose project. The company has spent the past two years remaking the Mid-Pike Plaza shopping center into a mixed-use, town-center style development.
It’s partnering with Strathmore for the music venue. Strathmore’s existing facility — the Music Center at Strathmore on Tuckerman Lane — holds nearly 2,000 seats and is one of two homes of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
AMP will be 2,800 square feet with floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies, plus a green room and 1,100-square-foot pre-function space.
It’ll also be located in the same building as an eight-screen iPic Theatres at 11800 Grand Park Ave., the new street Federal Realty built connecting to Old Georgetown Road.
The space will feature the Neighborhood Restaurant Group’s 550 Events & Provisions division as its exclusive food and catering vendor, not a surprise after Federal Realty announced the group would open a beer garden concept in the new neighborhood.
