Hickory Ridge is one of ten Village Centers within the new town of Columbia, Maryland. The existing inwardly focused retail center was planned to be repositioned to include multifamily residential and new retail centered on a central civic space. HCM’s updated vision addressed new trends in retail repositioning with emphasis on an enhanced pedestrian-oriented retail experience. A reconfigured village green provided a new focus and primary civic space for the surrounding neighborhood and village as a whole. The development program included 105,000 sf of existing and new retail along with 230 new multifamily apartments on 14.1 acres. The regulatory process included extensive community outreach meetings, design reviews and public hearings intended to help craft a renewed vision for Hickory Ridge.
