According to the sales center for Centex Cityhomes, the company’s proposed condominium building at 1200 East-West Highway is officially "on hold" for now, with no other details available at the present time on whether this project is still going to happen. The "Cityhomes at 1200 East-West" project, to be built on the site of an old auto-repair garage and lot across from the recently completed Silverton, was to contain a 14-story, mixed-use building, including 247 condos (ranging in size from 715 to 1365 sf) and approximately 10,600 square feet of retail space on the first floor. Centex purchased the property last May, and was supposed to begin construction this year, with a 2008 completion date. While the Silver Spring plan is now uncertain, it appears Centex is still moving forward with its nearby "Cityhomes: The Pavilions at Takoma" project, a four-story "green" building to be build one block form the Takoma metro station.
