Silver Spring's Moda Vista Residences Project Expected to Be Approved


While we have recently been fixated with the development lined up in south Silver Spring, we’d be remiss if we didn’t catch up with what’s happening northeast of the Red Line tracks and Georgia Avenue. The latest news arrives regarding the Moda Vista Residences project, a 1.27-acre development slated for the southeast corner of Fenton Street and Silver Spring Avenue (8115 Fenton Street), currently the site of parking lots and two detached homes. The Montgomery County Planning Board is expected next week to approve the project plan submitted by Fenton Development LLC, which calls for a five-story, 94-unit residential building (12 being moderately priced dwelling units) with 3,500 sf of ground-floor retail. The project also calls for an 8,331-sf plaza running along Silver Spring Avenue, plus two exterior public art displays on the site. In addition, the fa├žade along Silver Spring Avenue is to gently transition downward to match the detached homes to the east of the project. An interesting side note is that this property lies in a possible path for the proposed Purple Line; if so, studies are underway that envision the Line going through a tunnel at this point and not affecting this project. There are no further details regarding groundbreaking or completion schedule for the project at this time.
