Howard Hughes Corporation Starts $46M MOB Amid $5B Downtown Columbia Development

The Howard Hughes Corporation — which owns, manages and develops commercial, residential and mixed-use real estate in a portfolio of master-planned cities and communities — has broken ground on a four-story, $45.8 million medical office building located in the Lakefront District in Downtown Columbia, MD.

The four-story, 86,000-square-foot medical office building will rise along the south shore of Lake Kittamaqundi at 10285 Little Patuxent Parkway. It set in a wooded landscape and will feature outdoor gathering spaces, a permanent public art installation, and a boardwalk-style public terrace offering expansive lake views.

The groundbreaking marks the first major milestone in Howard Hughes Corporation’s planned rejuvenation of the Lakefront District, which is poised to serve as the heart of the transformative $5 billion, 30-year plan for Downtown Columbia. Future development planned for the Lakefront District also includes up to three million square feet of overall redevelopment (1.3 million square feet of office, 281,000 square feet of retail and 1,284 residential units)

At full buildout, the redevelopment of Downtown Columbia will include three neighborhoods — Lakefront District, Merriweather District and Central District — and will feature more than 14 million square feet of residential, office, hotel, retail, cultural and public uses including public parks, trails and more.
