This Wednesday, there was a groundbreaking ceremony in downtown Silver Spring for Central, a 231,000-square-foot mixed-use building by international property development and investment company Grosvenor Americas. The development will feature 243 apartments with 31 of the units designated as affordable housing. There will also be 16,000-square-feet of ground-floor retail space with outdoor seating along the sidewalks of Wayne Avenue, Fenton Street, and Bonifant Street. Expect amenities like an outdoor pool, rooftop lounge, gym, pet-wash facility, bike workshop, and 24-hour concierge service. The site of the development previously housed the historic First Baptist Church, which was built in 1956. The developers plan on building a new church for First Baptist as well as a daycare center on an adjacent plot. Expect Central to deliver by fall of 2017. There are no reports yet on what the asking prices will be for the apartments.
