Washington Property Co. (WPC) has topped out construction on Solaire 8250 Georgia Avenue, a 338-unit apartment community in Silver Spring. The community is located two blocks from the Silver Spring Metro station and roughly six miles north of Washington, D.C. The 20-story building will offer a mix of studio to two-bedroom units averaging 760 square feet. The building will also include three levels of below-ground parking and 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Individual units at Solaire 8520 will include quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood flooring and private balconies. Community amenities will include a rooftop swimming pool, cyber café, grilling areas, fitness center, private courtyard and a game room. Lendlease is the general contractor for the project, and Baltimore-based Design Collective is the architect. Streetsense is handling the leasing assignment for the retail portion of the project. Slated to open in spring 2019, Solaire 8520 is WPC’s fourth Solaire-branded apartment community and its second in Silver Spring’s Ripley District, a former light industrial area-turned transit-oriented neighborhood. At full build-out, the Ripley District will include 2 million square feet of mixed-use development and house up to 3,000 people.
