River Park Town Center (Master Plan)

Working on behalf of a developer of an 88-acre site in Hanover, DMR designed multiple concepts to accommodate for the vision of a mixed-use town center, with residential, retail, restaurant, and hotel options, as well as public parks, plazas and amenities.

The chosen concept includes 967 residential units, 80,000 SF of retail, two 125-room extended stay hotels, an outdoor amphitheater, and passive outdoor areas and trails along Patriot’s Path, a regional trail system.

The project also included presenting the design options to the Mayor and Council, and working with the Township and the developer to ensure the project is mutually beneficial to both parties.

Located within walking distance of the headquarters of companies such as Bayer, MetLife and Novartis, the project will have a major impact on the area that currently lacks a downtown, changing the both the retail and economic landscape through hundreds of new residents and many new retail, entertainment and hospitality options.

The first of eleven buildings brought 81 residential units to the site in 2024.
