Size & Type of Project – Traditional Design/Bid/Construct
Located on the south side of Thayer Avenue in Silver Spring just two blocks from the Red Line Metro, the Residences at Thayer will be a transit oriented development. The building is being designed to include 52 mixed-income apartment units and covered parking. A cast-in-place concrete platform will support four stories of timber framed residential construction. Parking will be located beneath the platform. The approximate gross framed area of new construction equals 49,548 SF.
