July 31, 2017
A 60-year-old building in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland, is planned to get a whole lot more residential. Washington Business Journal reported that developers The Bozzuto Group and StonebridgeCarras hope to raze the current building, located at 8787 Georgia Avenue, and build a mixed-use project with 360 residential units.
The 413,821-square-foot project will also offer a below-grade parking garage as well as up to 50,000 square feet of retail. In response to community feedback, the proposed building has changed from a U-shape to more of a W-shape.
Last week, the Montgomery County Board signed off on the sketch plan, but it is still in flux, according to Bethesda Magazine.
The building currently houses the Maryland-National Capital Parks and Planning Commission. The architecture firm behind the project is KTGY.
