Silver Spring, Md East Silver Spring Proposed Residential Development

DSC00358Proposed Condo/Apartment Building at 814 Thayer Avenue – Currently an Office Building (Accross from Silver Spring Towers Apartments) will be a 5 story 52 Unit Residential Building – Units will be 1 or 2 Bedroom – Some will have a mezzanine. Expected Prices are to be less than $450,000.  The developers are not sure how many or if any units will be for rent.  The designers are considering the location as a “transistional site” between the commercial buildings of Fenton Street Village and the adjoining residential area.  The building facade along Thayer Ave. will be pointed, with extensive glass panelling, the building will be set back from the street, and have a small plaza featuring chess tables, plus trees & ornamental plants.  The current building on the site was once home to the National Association of the Deaf & the National Association of the Deaf and Blind, to commemorate this the new building will have Braille on the exterior surface, plus other tributes to these associations. There will be only be 37 parking spaces for this Building. This Building design is Conceptual and not Final, at this time. The East Silver Spring Citizens Association heard about this proposed development at their January Meeting.  

For the February meeting the East Silver Spring Citizens Association will hear from the DSC00360Attorney for the developers of the site on the southeast corner of Silver Spring Avenue and Fenton Street. (currently a Parking Lot – Just a block away from the 814 Thayer Ave Site)  There is a  94 Unit Residential Project proposed.  This project will be either Condominiums or Apartments.  Residents in East Silver Spring have some valid concerns about traffic and parking, in and around an already busy, crowded, way too narrow Fenton Street.

superbowl3SuperbowlA man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl.  As he sits down, a man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. No,” he says, “The seat is empty.”   This is incredible,” said the man.  “Who in their right  mind would have  a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?” He says, “Well, actually, the seat belongs to me.  I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we haven’t been to together since we got married in 1967.”

Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.  That’s terrible.   But couldn’t you find someone else — a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?”. . . . 

The man shakes his head.  “No, they’re all at the funeral.”
