Pike & Rose

Rockville, Maryland

Architect: WDG Architecture
Completed: 2016

This exciting, award-winning new mixed-use development has transformed the White Flint area of Rockville.  WFT provided design for base building core and shell systems for two Blocks. Block 11 features an eight-story mixed-use building with 80,000 sf of office space over 117,000 sf of retail on the ground and first floor levels.  Five levels of above and below ground parking includes 597 spaces.  Keeping with Pike & Rose’s intent to resemble a walkable, historic city, the building features distinct storefront windows, decorative cornices and horizontally expressive curtain walls hanging from a central stone armature. Tenants include a 63,000 sf iPic movie theater, multi-level fitness center, retail stores, restaurants and Strathmore AMP, a popular 250-seat entertainment venue.  Following completion, WFT provided planning and design for several tenant fit-outs including the AMP.


Block 7 encompasses a 277,000 GSF free-standing parking structure equipped with 690 spaces, two levels below grade and five levels above grade, and one level open to the sky.   Our design included mechanical ventilation for the lowest two levels, heating and ventilating systems for utility rooms, equipment rooms and miscellaneous spaces, and fuel oil storage, piping and pumping for an emergency generator.  Plumbing systems include required domestic water, sanitary, and storm sewer systems.  Electrical design involved power, distribution systems from the electric service, interior space lighting, a fire alarm system as required by code, and a life safety emergency power system, inclusive of emergency generator. Fire suppression systems include fire service entry piping, equipment, and standpipe systems with points of connection, preparation of performance specifications for sprinkler distribution piping and sprinkler head layout.


The garage features 855 photovoltaic solar panels atop its fifth level producing 265 kilowatts of electricity yearly. At completion, it was the largest solar canopy system on a retail parking garage in Maryland and the largest solar canopy system in Montgomery County; funded in part by a grant from the Maryland Energy Administration.
