Acton’s Landing

Annapolis, Maryland

This award-winning adaptive infill project is a five-acre site located within the Annapolis Historic District.  Annapolis Landscape Architects' partner, Debby Smith worked on the site design and Annapolis Historic District submission process for this project.  The previous use as the Anne Arundel County Medical Center was redeveloped to include a medium-density residential development, extensive streetscape, and a new waterfront park.  This project was officially recognized as a successful example of the State Initiative for Smart Growth. The proposed redevelopment decreases the existing impervious surface significantly. Run-off is managed by a system of best management practice facilities.
