Columbia Assoc. might put downtown project on hold (BBJ & Howard County Times). Howard Hughes buys old Rouse building

Columbia’s Symphony Woods Park redevelopment may be put on hold until the Howard Hughes Corp. makes clear its plans for redeveloping the adjacent Merriweather Post Pavilion, the Howard County Times reported. See article here. The Howard Hughes Corporation recently acquired the old Rouse Building.

This is an Columbia Association artist’s conception of the new Symphony Woods Park.

Columbia Association approved the vision statement below.

Symphony Woods Park will be Columbia’s central park and will serve as a gateway to Merriweather Post Pavilion. Cultural programming and art installations are anticipated at the park to complement the activities at Merriweather. The park will be a place that celebrates music, arts and nature. An inviting and beautiful woodland gathering place, it will provide venues for energetic, creative activities such as community fairs, cultural events, art and craft vendors, local artists and spaces for reflective respite.
