Downtown Silver Spring, Md.’s, mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues attracts plenty of visitors and new residents to the area, who also appreciate the transportation hub of the Red Line Metro and numerous bus options.

Eventually the district will be home to as many as 3,000 residents and will have more than 2 million square feet of mixed-use development.

Among the housing options is Solaire 8250 Georgia, a 20-story, 338-unit apartment building completed this summer by Washington Property Co. The company also plans to break ground this year on Solaire Silver Spring II in the same neighborhood. Its Solaire-Metro apartment building opened in 2012.
