Silver Spring construction update: The Bonifant senior apartments (Photos)

The Bonifant will be an 11-story mixed-income apartment building for active seniors over the age of 61, right next to the new Silver Spring Library in downtown Silver Spring. A joint partnership between Montgomery Housing Partnership and developer Donohoe, VOA Associates and Humphrey Management round out the project team.

The Bonifant will feature 149 units: 10 studios, 119 one-bedrooms, and 20 two-bedrooms. Rents will be affordable for incomes between 30–60 percent of the area median income, and will also include apartment homes with no income restrictions.

A future Purple Line station will be at the library, adding to the walkable, transit-oriented nature of the project, which puts many amenities steps away for seniors.

The Bonifant is expected to deliver in early 2016.

  1. This was the perfect spot for a senior building as a traditional apartment building would have resulted in 140+ parking spaces and constant in/out traffic interfering w/the purple line on Bonifant. Well done, Montgomery Housing Partnership.
