SILVER SPRING, MD-Plans for Montgomery College’s new Takoma Park Campus King Street Arts Center–a locale that will house the new School of Art and Design at Montgomery College, the result of a merger between the college’s School of Arts and the Maryland College of Art and Design–moved forward. The school selects Cafritz Co. to provide design, construction and project management, as well as counsel on project financing. The development is expected to cost $33 million.

The new art center will be located at the four-acre former Giant Bakery site on Georgia Ave., where the 160,000-sf industrial bakery facility will be redeveloped to accommodate a bevy of amenities. Ultimately, the structure will feature classrooms, exhibit areas, a lecture hall, computer labs, art studios, storage, and an underground parking garage.

“We believe our team’s willingness to listen to the client and incorporate their short- and long-term needs in the redevelopment site was key to winning this assignment,” says Cafritz Co. CEO Bruce Baschuk.
