Elizabeth Square Project to Bring More Affordable Housing to Silver Spring

Lerch Early attorneys Bill Kominers, Susan Reutershan, and Sharon Nelson Craig are serving as the lead counsel for the Elizabeth Square Project in downtown Silver Spring, MD. The $200 million project will convert the Elizabeth House and Alexander House apartment towers and Fenwick Professional Park into a mixed-use community with affordable housing units. The project, which is being constructed by Lee Development Group and the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County, is planning to incorporate an expansion of the Holy Cross Hospital senior wellness center and a possible county-run recreation facility with an indoor pool and fitness component. If approved, the Housing Opportunities Commission plans to begin renovations on Alexander House next year and break ground on the new Elizabeth House in 2016.
