While it’s always exciting to see one of our projects under construction, it is doubly so when we can watch the buildings go up from our studio window. The Ansel, a luxury apartment building and it’s neighboring affordable, age-restricted apartments are slated for first occupancy mid-2021. HDG is thrilled to have had another opportunity to partner with Duball, LLC; Torti Gallas + Partners; Paradigm Construction; Bozzuto Management; and Victory Housing on this project. We could not ask for a better team! HDG can hardly wait for our new neighbors to open their doors next year, bringing 250 market-rate luxury apartments, 150 senior affordable apartments, and 20,000 SF of retail to downtown Rockville!
Have you noticed how many people are walking and hiking since the Coronavirus has forced us to stay home? Physically distanced from our family, friends and favorite haunts, we have turned to our natural surroundings to help us emotionally heal during this stressful time. Stepping into one of the many preserves the DC area is blessed with, the internal monologue of to-do lists and worries begins to melt away.
I love to hike and find that communing with nature lifts my spirit like nothing else can. When wandering through the woods, one of my favorite activities is looking for unexpected inspiration. In nature, there is an ever-present tension between warm and cool; between raw and refined that creates a sense of mystery, balance, and beauty. Integrating the palettes of nature and its organic textures into the design of interior space creates a sense of peace and tranquility. Something we could all use more of now.
We’re thrilled to share that construction on The Remy Phase II will begin in August 2020! The HDG team is honored to have provided interior design services for this multi-family building in the Harkins District in Prince Georges County.
A neighbor to Remy I; Remy Phase II will have its own amenities, including a social co-working lobby, a sunny living room, a clubroom/game room, fitness and yoga, and a co-working lounge – all surrounding the expansive courtyard. Providing a healthy connection to the outdoors, a four-season lounge opens to a roof deck, and a transit café is the place to stop for a cup of coffee before hopping on the train. Both buildings have immediate access to the Marc Train and Amtrak for commuters heading north or south to DC.
