Renovation Begins at Park Montgomery in Silver Spring

The homes will help meet the increased demand for affordable housing in Montgomery County

Soto Architecture & Urban Design announces the start of renovations at Park Montgomery and the new construction of Park Montgomery West; two adjacent affordable housing developments within walking distance of the Purple Line’s forthcoming Piney Branch Road Station.

“I am thrilled that the Park Montgomery projects will help preserve and accelerate the growth of transit-oriented affordable housing for Montgomery County’s diverse residents,” stated Fernando Bonilla-Verdesoto, Founder and Principal of Soto.

The renovation of Park Montgomery (4 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credit) will preserve all 141 apartments in the existing 1970s high-rise building. Upgrades include new finishes throughout, new fire and life safety systems, new electrical distribution system, increased energy efficiency and Air Quality, as well as accessibility improvements.

Park Montgomery West (9 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credit) will create 76 new multifamily apartments in a mixed-construction building (5-stories of wood-frame over 2 levels of concrete). The project will be certified as a Zero Energy Ready Homes building.

The team for Park Montgomery and Park Montgomery West include Enterprise Community Development, the Maryland DHCD, Harkins Builders (General Contractor), CPJ & Associates (Civil Engineer), Cates Engineering (Structural), and BKM (MEP Engineers).
