Last Thursday, the second phase of Frederick’s Carroll Creek Park project was honored at the NAIOP DC | MD Chapter's 15th Annual Awards of Excellence.
Hosted by a major organization for developers, owners, and related professionals in office, industrial, retail and mixed-use real estate, the ceremony was dedicated to highlighting outstanding achievements in commercial and industrial real estate in the DC metro area.
The Carroll Creek Park - Phase II Construction was awarded “Best Institutional Facility.”
The second section of Frederick’s iconic Creek project was completed mid-last year.
The recent work extended the existing linear park and shared use path east from South Carroll Street, past the MARC station, McCutcheon’s Apple Products, and Union Knitting Mills, to connect the path to East Patrick Street. The pathway improvements – including brick sidewalks, fountains, lighting, landscaping, benches, and a foot bridge – were designed to draw foot traffic to the rapidly developing east side of Frederick. More than $100 million in new and renovated private construction is planned along the phase two section –which will eventually result in hundreds of new jobs and increased state and local tax revenue.
The award was received by the City’s general contractor on the job – Waynesboro Construction. Waynesboro Construction was honored a second time during the evening with an Award of Merit: Best Retail Project for recent expansion work - including a rooftop addition- at the popular downtown Frederick restaurant, Brewer’s Alley.
