SILVER SPRING, MD-Construction of the Blair Towns–a new 78-unit environmentally friendly and efficient apartment compound–has concluded as developer The Tower Cos. wraps up building activity after having broken ground on the project last October. The $17 million luxury multifamily complex is a first on a couple of fronts; it is Silver Spring’s first new apartment structure in more than a decade, and it is the Greater Washington, DC region’s first “green” residential rental property.

Located across from the Silver Spring Metro station, the Blair Towns consists of several three- and four-story brick structures totaling 80,000 sf within the 27-acre urban center known as The Blairs. “Urban style living–which enables people to work, shop and live in one 24-hour community–is a forward-thinking and environmentally responsible approach to building,” says Bethesda, MD-headquartered Tower Cos. partner Jeffrey S. Abramson. “And, with the recent growth of Silver Spring, we are providing not only a healthy place to live but convenience to some extremely appealing venues like the American Film Institute, the Silver Spring Town Center and the new Discovery Channel headquarters.”
