Site plan shows development that would replace King Buick GMC in Rockville

Here is a look at the site plan for the proposed redevelopment of the King Buick GMC auto dealership property at 16200 Frederick Road. Rockville leaders are currently considering whether or not to annex the property into the city, a move necessary to allow construction of the density proposed here by developer EYA. A public hearing on the question of annexation has been scheduled.

EYA is proposing to build 247 townhomes and 118 "two-over-two multifamily units" on the property. Above, you can see the proposed open space (shown in blue) and green space (green) for the development. 

The site is walking distance to the Shady Grove Metro station. Intriguingly, it is also across the street from the Montgomery County dump, an issue that previously arose during the successful approval process for the Bainbridge Shady Grove down the street. May the winds be ever in your favor!


  1. That's no joke about the wind. Who knows what toxic dust or odorless fumes kids will be breathing as the winds blow from the dump into this housing development. I sure wouldn't want to live there.

  2. Its not a dump, its a transfer station and recycling center. Nothing is incinerated there, and I hardly think there are toxic fumes emanating from the property. Let's at least try to deal in facts and not hyperbole.

  3. let me just say from someone who currently works across from this transfer station.... on many days there is a horrible smell that if the wind is blowing in the right direction you get a very nasty smell from this transfer station!!! It might not be toxic but that doesnt mean it still smells like SHI$
