What Joint/Transit-Oriented Development Opportunities Exist?
The MDOT Office of Real Estate is working to make more transit area sites, primarily in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, available for development or redevelopment.
Please note that these transit station properties are typically NOT for sale; rather they provide an excellent opportunity for joint transit development.
MDOT can promote new development on its property in any one of the three approaches.
- Directed Request for Proposals - MDOT engages in pre-development planning to assess market potential and community objectives. The resulting solicitation for proposals specifically identifies the development program that MDOT seeks. "Symphony Center" at the Cultural Center Light Rail Station and the Owings Mill Town Center are two examples of development initiatives where this approach was used.
- General Solicitations - MDOT identifies properties with development potential and local government support. It advertises for developers` proposals that meet transit oriented development principles. The last General Solicitation for Development Proposals on Selected MTA Properties was developed in 2003, and the property listings can be found on this page.
- TP3 - The Transportation Public Private Partnership Program (TP3) offers a process for MDOT to receive unsolicited proposals for the development of some of its transportation facilities under certain circumstances. Development proposals that meet transit orient development principles may be submitted at any time on any property that MTA owns. For complete guidelines, click here.
