Brown, chairman of David S. Brown Enterprises Ltd., said he is preparing to request a property tax abatement in the form of a payment in lieu of taxes, or PILOT, this spring in order to begin the 476-unit multi-family project. Brown said he had not yet determined a total amount for the PILOT.

Instead of laying Columbia out as a grid, chief planner Morton Hoppenfeld followed the planning trends that were popular in the 1960s: he created curvilinear village pods which were separated by the stream valleys the developer was committed to preserving, using the overlay model explained by landscape architect Ian McHarg in his 1969 book Design with Nature.
