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.

Canada dry picNeo-metro-cerine-stainless-cherry-toilet-8995-seriesThe South Silver Spring Neighborhood Association has a website. It is in BLOG form that residents can comment on and includes a Community Guide. The site is very innovative with an integrated Event Calander. The Community Guide takes the form of a wiki. This is the only community website of it’s kind that I have seen in our area. The website contains information about local parks, businesses and residences in the community, as well as information about business that provide services to South Silver Spring.

Congratulations to South Silver Spring – I think the new site looks great! And Last but not least, for the ultimate in Home Improvement and Bathroom renovation….. I recieved an email from Roto Rooter, I have used them in my Real Estate business and at home over the last few years. They are great in an emergency and at a reasoanble charge. I was surprised when they sent me this email about giving away a TRICKED OUT TOILET? in their PIMPED Out JOHN sweepstakes. This is for Real? What will they think of next?
