Silver Spring construction update: Core (Photos)

The leasing center is open on-site for the future Core apartments at 8621 Georgia Avenue in downtown Silver Spring. It may look like a construction site (which it still very much is), but look carefully for the signs near the trailer. 

You'll notice those "spikes" that protrude from the roof of a building under construction have been removed since my last update.

Core will contain 292 apartments, and about 1500 SF of retail space. The Foulger-Pratt/Willco project is scheduled to deliver this summer. 


  1. Any word/gossip on retail that might go in there. Please something not lame (e.g another mattress type store).

    1.'s only 1500 sqft. Presumably will be a dry cleaners, deli, barber shop, etc. - something useful for the local block, not something that draws from beyond the neighborhood (like the mattress store you whine about).

    2. "like the mattress store I wine about." It is prime location and a wasted use of it. I look forward to the day it closes so that it can be put to good use.

    3. People need mattresses so there are mattress stores (a whopping two for all of 20910). Who cares. Calling retailers that meet a practical need "lame" makes you sound like a child.

  2. I'll take a mattress store over an empty retail space.
    Though I wish for something cooler than that.
