Construction Update

Picture of Campus Master Plan

Welcome to our Construction Zone

We are excited that work has begun on Landon's Campus Master Plan, which was approved by Montgomery County in 2021. This plan will transform our grounds into an even more beautiful and beneficial home for our boys, our faculty, and our community! Please see below for the latest updates on what is happening on campus and what is coming up soon! Please reach out to info@landon.net with questions.

TRAFFIC ALERT

The roadway that runs into campus from Wilson Lane is a single lane in order for work to be complete on our new entrance, roadway, fencing, and security booth.  This means that the traffic patterns through campus have changed significantly. Most importantly, the Wilson Lane entrance will be the only entrance into campus, and the only exit from campus is through the road leading to Bradley Boulevard. Traffic through campus will generally flow from south to north.  If you plan to be on campus for any events including those held on nights and weekends, please pay attention to signage! Security staff will be available to help with directions. 


 

Campus Master Plan: Right Now

Landon will complete "Phase 0" of the Plan around September 30, 2022. Beginning in late February 2022, work began in earnest at our Wilson Lane entrance on the initial stages of our broader construction project. The white rocks have been moved to an area near the pool for safekeeping during construction, fencing has been installed throughout the area, and the fading silver maples that had lined the entry (which will be replaced by a new row of taller and longer-lived shade trees) are now removed. We will try to save and repurpose any of that wood as possible.

Campus Welcome Center and Infrastructure Improvements

We plan a number of important infrastructure improvements that will enhance the safety and security of the entire Landon community, improve the student and visitor experience, and beautify the campus. First, we will move roadways to the perimeter of the campus, allowing for the creation of an academic quad and pedestrian-friendly core of the campus – a continuous, vehicle-free area where the boys spend most of their academic day. In addition, a new welcome center closer to Wilson Lane will guide visitors and facilitate vehicle traffic. At the front entrance, we will install new fencing and landscaping to improve the aesthetic view from inside and outside campus and to provide a higher level of security.

Phase 1

US Approach

New Upper School Building 

To address the pressing need for additional and updated space, Landon will build a new Upper School facility that better serves our mission and our ambitions for Landon’s oldest students.

Our Upper School will be moving into a brand new, state-of-the-art building. Our oldest students will enjoy inspiring spaces such as a central, skylit common area designed for presentations and lectures as well as studying and socializing together. Modern science and engineering labs will be arranged around a science forum that engages all in learning and innovation. It will represent the best of Landon – at once respectful of the past and receptive to the future.

Campus Master Plan: The Future

Capital Projects

Landon will raise $30 million to enhance our facilities.

The Campus Master Plan envisions the creation of a new Upper School building, which will maintain a central location on the current site of the Andrews House, establishing a beacon of learning on the highest point of our 75 acres. With this new Upper School, the Middle School will then move into a renovated and expanded Banfield Academic Center (the current Upper School building), and the Lower School will move into the current Middle School, resulting in an academic quad that supports a cohesive Landon experience for all of our students.
