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".
