Carroll Creek Business Park – A Case Study in Transformational Redevelopment
From historic properties to prominent storefronts, our goal is to help property and business owners join in the growth of Frederick as spaces transition in ownership and function.
In the 1970s, Downtown Frederick was little more than Market Street and an assortment of small businesses. By the mid-80s, city leaders realized that Frederick needed an identity to differentiate it from all the other small cities.
They created the downtown historic district, built the precursor to today’s Carroll Creek Park, and ushered in a new era of restaurants and business. Fast forward thirty years, and it’s a bustling city, replete with thriving businesses, hip aesthetics, and historic spaces that are being reimagined for new use.
A lot has changed, and it’s certainly exciting. But change requires that buildings and properties are brought into Frederick’s growth with vision and purpose—or they risk being left behind and losing their value.
The Carroll Creek Business Park is an example of that.
When the longtime-manufacturing site became vacant next to McCutcheon’s, a new vision was needed in order to capitalize on the property’s value and location adjacent to the Carroll Creek Linear Park.
That’s where Warner Commercial came in.
At Warner Commercial, we’re passionate about stewarding Frederick’s growth through commercial real estate services. From historic properties to prominent storefronts, our goal is to help property and business owners join in the growth of Frederick as spaces transition in ownership and function.
