This thesis seeks to explore an edge condition created by the Southern boundary of the University of Maryland campus and 41 acres of privately held student housing and retail properties. The proximity of this land to the campus and the current local housing shortage make it a critical part of the solution. The University of Maryland has developed a master plan that describes a vision for its future with an eye toward efficient use of space. The area described above has not yet benefited from a comprehensive vision. This thesis will focus on the development of a comprehensive plan for this site, and will culminate in the schematic design of a mixed use (retail and residential) building. This building sited at the intersection of Knox Road and Route 1 will seek to make tangible the vision for future development that will maximize the resources and potential of this site.
