Office Park To Become Neighborhood

The Upper Rock District, which has been called the first plan to convert an existing suburban business park into a mixed-use neighborhood, has won approval from the City of Rockville, Maryland, council.

"Upper Rock is one of only a handful of new urban projects that connect to existing new urban communities. King Farm, with 3,200 housing units, a huge workplace district, and a town center anchored by a Safeway, borders Upper Rock to the southeast."
