South Silver Spring and nearby Shepherd Park residents in DC voiced mixed concerns at a meeting Monday to discuss a new, 7-story apartment building being planned for the space currently occupied by Extra Space Self Storage, located at 8001 Newell St.
Comstock Homes, a Virginia-based development company, made its official project presentation to the communities that would be affected by the project.
The proposed 7-story apartment building would sit between two existing condominium buildings—8045 Newell Street and Eastern Village Co-Housing, located at 7983 Eastern Ave. The planned building is directly across from DC residents on Eastern Avenue.
Is the revitalization of downtown Silver Spring which once attracted new residents proving to be too much for current homeowners?
