Whadda ya know... more "luxury" condos!

Will Silver Spring be movin' on up to a deluxe apartment in the sky? It will if KSI Services has anything to say about it. They developer is planning a 20-story "twin towers" complex called Midtown Silver Spring that will house 350 "luxury" condos. They still need to get county approval for the project, but the official website is already up. The proposed site is off Ripley Street, between Georgia Avenue and the railroad tracks.

According to KSI's Don Hauge:

"It would be a higher-end project, with all the bells and whistles," he says. "We'll have a pool on the roof, a substantial fitness center, a game room and a conference area for people with home-based businesses. And we're looking forward to some spectacular views."
I hate to break it to you Don, but the original Twin Towers in Silver Spring also had a great rooftop view until someone built a row of office buildings in front of it, so this might only be temporary. Also, for what it's worth, Twin Towers also has a pool on the roof.

Personally, I just think it is funny that Silver Spring now has a "Midtown".

I looked at the official website; it features a big picture of the inside of an underground Metro station. Guess the real Silver Spring station doesn't have enough highbrow appeal. Am I the only one who thinks poor old Silver Spring is being turned into another Bethesda?

The Ellsworth condos website also has a picture of another Metro station (see previous post). I am more worried about Silver Spring being turned into another NoVa suburb like Ballston or Rosslyn, with nothing but generic office buildings and highrise condos. At least Bethesda has a lot of unique restaurants and shops outside of "Bethesda Row".

Hate to break to you guys but downtown Silver Spring has a real downtown to it, too. Much bigger than Bethesda's I might add. Isn't residential condo development just part of its growth? And while Ballston and Rosslyn are completely incomparable (Ballston is a real downtown, Rosslyn isn't), Silver Spring and Bethesda are lightyears ahead of them in planning, development, and density. The picture of a Metro station on the Midtown Silver Spring (which is what KSI calls ALL of its condos) is generic and the real website has yet to be put up.

The generic NoVa suburb is nothing like Ballston. Tysons and Vienna and Reston? C'mon now folks, look at a site like beyonddc.com and fill your ignorant minds with real information.
