FORT DETRICK, MD-The US Army has awarded a $50-million Enhanced Use Leasing contract to develop a hotel/conference facility, administrative office complex and retail center on Ft. Detrick’s Bio-Defense Campus. A joint venture between Dick Corp. and Hunt Development Group called Detrick Properties, LLC won the contract.

With the ground lease now in hand, Detrick Properties will develop the 24-acre parcel. Plans call for the construction of class A office, technology and research space as well as the retail, and hotel/conference component. There will also be a significant amount of green space with water features and pedestrian pathways to connect on- and off-post facilities.

Other participants in the project include the Landings Real Estate Group, which will provide development and management services; the design team of The Lessard Group, a Virginia-based architect; and engineering firm Greenehorne & O’Mara with hospitality operator Sodexho.
