11141 Georgia Avenue :: Breaking the Box

The completion of our most recent project, 11141 Georgia Avenue, concludes the transformation of a drab,1960s 5-story office building into a dramatic 12-story, 194-unit apartment tower in Wheaton, Maryland.

Targeted to a young demographic seeking an affordable and convenient urban lifestyle, the project includes a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom units, along with two levels of below-grade parking and extensive amenities: a rooftop club room and fitness center with views of the Washington monument, and a rooftop grill and patio.

Adhering to tenets of smart growth, the project has set the standard for a densified Wheaton core; it is the first site plan permit approved by the Montgomery County Planning Commission under the new Wheaton Sector Plan. Situated directly across from the Wheaton Metro Station, 11141 Georgia Avenue is a transit-oriented development and is LEED certified­­­.

Leasing at a brisk pace and ahead of projections, we offer congratulations to our client, Lowe Enterprises, our talented team of architects, consultants and attorneys, and our general contractor, Whiting-Turner!
