"We are excited to be working with CBG on the Paramount at Watkins Mill" said Kent Henry of BP Realty. "The Paramount is a vital component of the overall Watkins Mill smart growth development, and will provide Montgomery County with the best in mixed-use, walkable communities."

The four-story Paramount at Watkins Mill will encompass an extensive amenities package for its residents - including rooftop terraces, a heated swimming pool, and an exercise pavilion - which overlook a park. The Paramount is the initial phase of the more extensive Spectrum at Watkins Mill development project, which will include additional residential components and offices within walking distance of forest preserves and stream valley buffers.

"We are excited to be involved in this project with first-time client BP Realty," said Keith Anderson, president of Clark Builders Group. "Watkins Mill will be an important development in Gaithersburg, and we welcome this opportunity to contribute by constructing the Paramount apartment community."

The pedestrian-friendly Paramount at Watkins Mill is just a short walk to numerous shops, restaurants, parks, and trails. In keeping with Watkins Mill Town Center's transit-oriented goals, the project is also located near several major road systems and public transportation options, including the existing Amtrak/MARC rail station, which is planned as a main station for the programmed Corridor Cities Transit Light Rail system.
