Doors Shut at
Oak Creek Club
An ongoing dispute over building
permits has forced Montgomery
Development to shut down operations
at Oak Creek Club in Upper Marlboro.
Montgomery’s hand was forced when,
after months without permits, its lender
declared the project in default.
Montgomery has told the homeowners
board that its offices at the golf course
community will remain shut down until
the project’s future can be determined.
At nearly 1,000 acres, the Oak Creek is
one of the county’s premier
At issue is a condition of approval on
the conceptual site plan that
Montgomery is unable to meet: that
construction on a golf course
clubhouse begin by either the 850th
building permit or by March, 2010,
whichever is sooner. While about 500
permits have been issued, well short of
the trigger at 850, the March deadline
came and went. But with only about 50
members, there is little prospect of Oak
Creek Golf building the clubhouse.
That means the larger Oak Creek
project has been stymied since late last
year over the issue, when Park and
Planning put a hold on all new permits
until the developer could come into
compliance with the condition.
Planning staff determined two months
ago that changing the condition
required a full Planning Board review.

Eight-Building Buy
JV Acquires Office, Warehouse in College Park
A joint venture bought eight buildings in College Park built by longtime developer
Irving Kidwell.
The Goldstar Group, in a partnership with Congressional Commercial, paid $3.975
million to acquire 5105 – 5127 Berwyn Road. Those addresses total eight buildings
in all, sitting on 5.4 acres and amounting to 81,000 square feet. The buildings run
from 4,000 square feet to a largest building of 18,000 feet.
Goldstar and Congressional now are looking to lease up the available 25 percent in
vacant space. La Prima Catering is already a tenant, and the seller, an affiliate of
Strickland Fire Protection, agreed to a new lease as part of the sale. Asking rents run
from $8 to $11 triple net for what are a variety of available spaces, from small-bay
to larger warehouse and office suites. Overall, the project is about two-thirds
warehouse and the remainder office space.
“We think we bought it right, in terms of price per foot and cap rate,” said Michael
Brodsky of Bethesda-based Goldstar. “It gives us the flexibility to hold it or lease it
up and sell it in a few years.” Brodsky said the partnership will do some minor
capital improvements, but said the previous owners had kept the buildings in good
Goldstar’s partner Congressional Commercial last surfaced in the county when it
bought 4500 Lehigh Avenue in College Park. That $500,000 acquisition bought
Congressional a small office and retail building close to the University of Maryland.
Before that, Congressional, headed by Langdon Hample, paid $700,000 for a oneacre tract in Brentwood now leased to The Roof Center. The acquisition of the
Berwyn Road properties was a direct deal. It was financed with a $2.4 million loan
from the Bank of Georgetown.
Beltsville Warehouse Traded For $1.7 Million
A warehouse sale in Beltsville at the end of the year made it past our scrutiny.
Daata Partners (Daata is not a typo) paid $1.7 million to claim 7125 Virginia Manor
Court as 2010 closed out. The 20,000 square foot free-standing warehouse sits on
two acres zoned I-1. Long time owners Doane & Kempner LLC parted with the
building. D&K had sold its business eight years ago but retained the real estate until
the sale. It had most recently leased the building to Yangtze Railroad Fasteners,
which left Beltsville for a new location in Baltimore. Hobbs and Associates
represented the seller, while Edge Commercial brought the buyer.

Mirage Makes
Short-term Play
Freshly acquired by cosmetic giant
Revlon, Mirage Cosmetics has
expanded in Beltsville with a shortterm lease.
Mirage already has a Beltsville
presence, at 10721 Tucker Street, but
it took 44,149 square feet for a oneyear term at 10726 Tucker. The deal
is a sublease with current tenant
Gryphon House Inc.
Mirage’s acquisition by Revlon went
down in the beauty trade press as an
effort by the bigger company to
expand its reach in the nail polish
business. Apparently, Mirage’s
‘Sinful Colors’ line was the lure.
Rob Foa of TSC Realty brought the
subtenant, while Andy Mayr of NAI

Professional Place in Landover in
order to service the contract with the

Chaddsford Settlements for KHov
Chaddsford and Palisades are the two subdivisions providing the most sustenance to K.
Hovnanian’s bottom line right now.
A review of the land records shows that KHov settled on 13 units for the first two
months of the year in Prince George’s County. Of that group, seven were in
Chaddsford, off Route 301 in Brandywine, while KHov went to the settlement table
three times in Palisades. Otherwise, KHov closed two deals in ‘Lakeview,’ and and
one in ‘Ridings at Upper Marlboro.’
Of the Chaddsford deals, two, averaging $221,000, were townhouse sales. Otherwise,
KHov closed five singles in the Brandywine subdivision, getting $332,000 on average.
KHov’s three closings in Palisades all cleared the $500,000 mark. It joined Caruso last
year in the Church Road subdivision just south of Central Avenue after Pulte pulled up
stakes. The three Palisades deals averaged $510,000.
KHov also got healthy numbers in Lakeview at Brandywine, where it actually wrote
the highest sale of the bunch - $570,000 - in a January closing. Another homebuyer
took up residence in Lakeview for $534,000. Finally, KHov sold a new single in
Ridings at Upper Marlboro, where it’s in the final phase, for $407,000.
Oak Creek Club Halted Over Permit Issue
(Continued from Page 1)
Since then, 16 of the 19 recent contract purchasers in Oak Creek have cancelled their
contracts with their builders. Over the last year, NVHomes and Ryan, Craftmark
Homes and K&P were all active in the community.
Oak Creek’s developer got a small sliver of good news last week, when the Planning
Board agreed to waive the normal $30,000 filing fee in order to hear an argument to
amend the clubhouse condition. Montgomery Development was expected to file an
amended conceptual plan last week that would eliminate the March, 2010 deadline
outright. It will propose instead that it must commence construction on the clubhouse
before it draws the 850th permit. The earliest that proposal can be heard is in May.
Meanwhile, Montgomery has proceeded to arbitration with Oak Creek Golf, the course
operators, but those talks don’t begin until late May, and Montgomery has indicated to
others that early negotiations with the golf course company have not been fruitful.
Faced with those deadlines, Montgomery closed its offices at Oak Creek in late March,
and, because it no longer has an operating account, informed the Oak Creek
homeowners association that it had to take responsibility for grounds maintenance,
guard service and the like.
As of last week, Montgomery was preparing to file its new plan. Getting a hearing is
no guarantee that a change in the condition is coming, as there is a group of residents
that has opposed any change in the condition. But without that change, there will be no
building at Oak Creek for a long time to come.

Ft. Wash Property
Put in Chapter 11
The partnership that owns an 18.7 acre
tract that overlooks the Potomac River
in Fort Washington filed for
bankruptcy protection recently.
The Grande Vista LLC staved off an
auction scheduled for last week by
seeking Chapter 11 protection. The
Virginia-based group owns 18.7 acres
at 8409 Clay Drive that it hoped to
develop for custom homebuilders.
Grande Vista plans 20 single-family
lots, and last spring had cleared a
hurdle when its design met with county
historic preservation commission
approval. Next door to Grande Vista is
the historic Upper Notley Hall
mansion. A preliminary plan of
subdivision was subsequently approved
in April.
Located off Fort Foote Road, the
planned subdivision is also a short
walk to National Harbor, just to the
north. The community doesn’t front the
Potomac River, but Grande Vista’s
plans include an easement that would
provide future homeowners with access
to the mighty Potomac.
Auction on 83 Lots
An 83-lot subdivision is up for bid
online, but is set for a final auction in
The Grasslyn properties, totaling 60.2
acres and located on Ritchie Marlboro
Road, just north of Brown Road, are
being auctioned by Tranzon Fox.
Zoned R-R, Grasslyn was platted as a
cluster subdivision and has detailed site
plan approval.

Some Changes Coming
Sparring over Environmental Regs
With interest in development starting to stir again, developers revisiting their plans
or bringing in new ones are waking up to a startling reality: the environmental laws
are greatly changed. And they’re much tougher.
Over the last few months, concern about the package of bills passed in June of last
year has risen, as developers try to navigate the demands of the legislation itself, the
accompanying Technical Manual, and for some, the difficult grandfather clause.
But Park and Planning has heard an earful from developers and is beginning to work
on changes to both the Manual and the legislation that should make the
environmental laws more workable.
Both developers and planning staffers agree that the usual give-and-take that
accompanies major legislation didn’t occur with the environmental changes.
Although planners reached out to the industry as the changes began to take shape in
2008 and 2009, most developers were struggling to renegotiate loans, not worrying
about expanded stream buffers.
“It’s probably true that the flow of cases was down,” said the environmental
division’s CJ Lammers. “Now more people are active and we’re applying the
changes to real cases. It’s a bit like a new pair of shoes. It does require some
breaking in.”
Right now, planners are trying to differentiate administrative changes and what they
call ‘common sense’ changes from more substantive amendments. Lammers said that
developers may have an issue with expanded stream buffers and the requirement to
place Primary Management Areas on lots of at least an acre, even in the smaller lot
zones, but those are issues that the County Council actively debated and approved.
Likely Amendments. More ripe for change in the coming months are those places
where the code is conflicting or uncertain. Those include instances of when the tree
canopy rules apply and which trees are counted or not counted. Also likely to be
reviewed is the wide-ranging requirement for an NRI, or natural resources inventory.
The legislation greatly expanded the number of plans for which an NRI must be
produced. In both the tree canopy and NRI cases, there is discussion of backing the
requirement off to fewer plans, particularly where no new development is involved.
Additionally, the grandfather clauses were written in the proverbial 11th hour, and are
candidates for a revision.
Planners say despite some of the missteps, the legislation has clear benefits, among
them the setting down of standards and definitions. Lammers said she recently
received a plan that had all the right notes, all the standards met, and everything in
order, something she hadn’t seen in 10 years. “It was a hallelujah moment,” she said.
“People can get to the right answer much more quickly,” said Lammers. “We think it
will reduce the number of reviews and streamline the process.” Developers,
meanwhile, remain concerned that costs will rise and density will fall as a result of
the new environmental laws.

Church Back for
Its’ Sanctuary
An application by the church that won
a multi-million dollar land-use
settlement against the county is one of
the projects trying to win a sewer and
water category change.
Reaching Hearts International wants to
build a 72,000 square foot sanctuary
and 12,000 square foot gym on its 13acre property at 6100 Brooklyn Bridge
Road. Its efforts go back several years
but were interrupted by a trip to federal
district court, where a $3.7 million
judgment in its favor was upheld.
Reaching Hearts, a Seventh Day
Adventist congregation, filed suit in
2005 seeking $9 million, claiming the
county had violated its civil rights by
disapproving its application for a
category change. Reaching Hearts’
property is located close to the Rocky
Gorge Reservoir, and thenCouncilmember Tom Dernoga,
opposing the project, rallied support
against it as it was too close to the
county’s ‘largest source of drinking
Dernoga ultimately lobbied for and
won approval of a bill which reduced
development density within 2,500 feet
of a drinking water reservoir.
But the Church claimed, and its suit
upheld, that it was discriminated
against as a religious organization.
Other projects seeking a category
change include developer Harvey
Blonder’s plan for 16 townhouses and
a two story retail building at
11730Annapolis Road in Glenn Dale;
16 townhouses in ‘Marlton’ in Upper
Marlboro, on property owned by the
county but under contract to Property
& Industry Coordinators; and a
proposal to use a 50,000 square foot
building at 14175 Brandywine Road as
a recycling facility.

Forest City Again
Pair Tabbed for New Carrollton
Forest City Enterprises and Urban Atlantic Development are the chosen developers
for the New Carrollton Metro Station. The choice gives Forest City a second major
stake in the county, for it is already a partner in the development of Konterra in
At New Carrollton, the pair will lay their corporate hands on 39 acres surrounding the
station and begin over the next few months to develop a cohesive plan. Chosen from
five bidders, Forest City and Urban Atlantic can develop up to 5.5 million feet of
office and retail, as well as 3,000 residential units.
Contributions: The Loophole Will Be Shut
General Assembly members rejected a county-driven ethics compromise and appear
poised to pass their own legislation on developer contributions.
The Council didn’t get what it wanted at all on the contribution bill, and Assembly
sources suggest that the Council may have overplayed its hand in pushing for an
amendment that would effectively codify ‘district courtesy.’ As it is, the bill moving
forward will not allow members to vote on those projects where a developer or its
employees had contributed to the members’ slate within the previous three years.
Councilmembers could only vote on a project if the Council member agreed to pay
back the donation and disclose it.
Expanding the prohibition on requiring recusal from a slate, instead of just a
Councilmember directly, is seen by some as a money grab by the state legislators.
Laurel Councilmember Mary Lehman rejected the legislation as a ‘consolidation of
power,’ according to the Gazette.
But others see in the play out of ethics bills a refusal by the Council to read the
extremely large writing on the wall of a few months ago. Leading Assembly officials
had made clear after the Jack Johnson scandal broke that an ethics bill would pass, but
instead of preemptively ceding some ground the Council went into defensive mode.
First, the nine members tenaciously fought limitations to the District Council call-up
provision before finally accepting a 205-day limit on their review of site plans. Then
they turned their collective opposition to the contribution bill. There, the Council’s
suggested compromise would have prohibited slate contributions from developers
during the time a project was reviewed. It also would require only those Council
members in an affected district to recuse themselves from a vote if they had taken
developer contributions. That, the Assembly decided, fell far short of its expectations.
Major Road Agreement:
As our newsletter went to press, it was
reported that the developers of Konterra and the state had reached a settlement that
should, literally, pave the way for a new interchange on I-95 and future growth at the
mixed-use Laurel project.. As first reported by The Post, the state and the Gould
family agreed that the Goulds will deed land to the state, which will build a $44
million interchange at 95 and Contee Road. The state will also provide the county
with $30 million to rebuild Virginia Manor Road. In turn, the state gets land it needs
to complete the ICC.
