More penguins for downtown Silver Spring (Photos)
The penguins of the restored mural near the Silver Spring Metro station will have some company in a few years. An extended-stay hotel in the works at 8600 Georgia Avenue will have its own penguin-themed public art, which will be visible from the town's cursed Silver Spring Transit Center.
Proposed diving penguins mural as it would look from the Metro
The hotel's massive building-side-height mural will feature diving birds of the tuxedoed variety entering ostensibly-polar waters. It comes with a minor caveat: Should the adjacent property redevelop, the new penguins could end up being blocked from view.
