Solaire-Wheaton is a six-story, luxury apartment community featuring 232 units. The LEED® Silver certified project features a cast-in-place concrete two-level parking garage and podium level below five wood-framed stories. The site is part of an eight-acre area targeted by Montgomery County for mixed-use downtown revitalization. Amenities include a landscaped courtyard, swimming pool, clubroom, fitness center, and Wi-Fi Café. Solaire-Wheaton is conveniently located within a block of the Wheaton Metro station and a short walk to Westfield Mall.
Solaire-Wheaton is LEED® Silver certified under the USGBC’s LEED v3 Rating System. Prior to construction, materials from the demolition of the existing structure were largely recycled and diverted from landfills. In addition, white roofing materials and 100% covered parking reduce heat island effect, while efficient plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems reduce water usage. The property’s proximity to alternative transportation and many community services promotes pedestrianism, and the building will feature preferred parking spaces for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles.
