THOMAS ROWE, AIA RESUME Continued
Confidential Transit Oriented Concept Master Plan, Northeastern U.S. Principal-in-Charge and Lead Planner/Architect for the recently prepared Concept Master plan for the planning and design of a $300 million major transit-oriented redevelopment site located within a block of a major Amtrak Train Station. The site is also served by a stop on a major subway system. The project, which includes a 15% affordable housing set aside, was planned as two phases. The initial phase has two alternatives varying from 610,600 S.F.– 851,500 S.F., all residential. Phase II consists of mixed uses that included 455 residential units, 3,000 S.F. of retail, 3,000 S.F. of day care space, and parking for approximately 480 cars.
Riverside Park Development, Fairfax County, Virginia Principal-in-Charge and Lead Planner/Lead Architect for a 28.17-acre site near the Potomac River in Fairfax County. The Development contains 1,226 units in several 15-story buildings with surface parking for 1,804 cars. The developer is seeking a zoning variance to add additional units. The residential buildings planned consist of a five-story base containing parking in the center and residential units around the edge with 10 stores of residential space above. The development also includes structured parking and extensive landscaped parks.
North Campus Master Plan and Design of New Martel College, and Additions to Jones and Brown Colleges, Rice University, Houston, TX Principal-in-Charge and Collaborating Planner/Architect for a Comprehensive Master Plan for Rice’s North Campus and the design of Martel College, a new student residence. A major goal of the master plan was to lower food service costs by providing centralized food preparation and service facilities for Martel and two existing colleges, Brown and Jones. When the planning process revealed that Brown and Jones were undersized, Mr. Rowe also designed their expansions. The MGA plan adopted a strategy, not considered previously, which linked the three colleges and formed a series of new quadrangles that visually re-connect the North Campus to the historic University core. The 100,000 S.F Martel College contains a 234-bed dormitory, apartments for resident advisors and visiting faculty, classrooms and computer laboratory, library, lounges, dining commons, the kitchen and servery for all three colleges and a separate master’s house. The expansions of Brown and Jones increased their dormitory capacity by approximately 50% and added libraries, classrooms and a master’s house for Jones.
