Clark Realty Builders Starts The Blair Towns
For immediate release
October 24, 2002
The Blair Towns is the first new apartment community in downtown Silver Spring in the last decade. The Blair Towns will also be the first LEED-certified** residential project in the mid-Atlantic region. The "in-fill" smart growth development complies with the stringent requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council's Green Building Rating System. CRB's affiliate, Clark Construction Group, Inc., built the LEED-certified "platinum" Chesapeake Bay Foundation Headquarters in Annapolis, Md., and recently completed the structured parking for The Blair Towns.
Designed by Niles Bolton Associates, Alexandria, Va., the three three- and four-story brick residential buildings will offer 25 one-bedroom, 47 two-bedroom, and six three-bedroom apartments. Individual apartments feature nine-foot ceilings, walk-in closets, washers/dryers and Energy Star appliances. Fireplaces, private garages, and lofts are available in some units.
Located less than one block from the Silver Spring Metro station, The Blair Towns is also convenient to shopping, restaurants, and Rock Creek Park. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2003.

**The LEED Green Building Rating System is a priority program of the U.S. Green Building Council. It is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven building rating system based on existing proven technology that evaluates environmental performance from a "whole building" perspective over a building's life cycle. LEED is intended to be a definitive standard for what constitutes an environmentally friendly "green building."
