Greenbelt Shadow Study – Impact on North College Park

Following the presentation by Chad Williams of M-NCPPC at our last work session, I asked him to provide us detailed shadow study images of our north College Park neighborhood, once the proposed 20 story development takes place in GreenBelt area.

Please see three aerial images. They are the shadows in the morning of December 21, which is when the sun is lowest and the shadows are longest. They are at 8:00am, 8:50am and 9:00am.

It appears that a large portion of our neighborhood will be under shadow around 8:00am, however because of late sunrise in winter, other areas will also be in dark, not just in the shaded area.. By 8:50 a.m., only two-three yards in North College Park would be impacted, and by 9:00 a.m. none of the homes would be impacted.

Please note that they maximized building form at 8 stories within the height transition zone and 20 outside the zone without trying to break the forms into more appealing architectural style.
