Skeptical? I assure you it's absolutely true - I read it on the Internet. Specifically, I discovered this astounding news on the website for the under-construction Citron apartments.
The following is from the site, and is best read using the voice of the late, great, Don LaFontaine:
There was a time when people held salons, intimate gatherings of literary, artistic and cultural movers and shakers. At Citron, that era is back, in all its creative glory. Citron is an intimate counterpoint to its high-rise neighbors. A haven of serenity and elevated consciousness in the heart of Downtown Silver Spring's never-ending excitement. Amenity-rich, filled with features, green and sustainable, and always forward-thinking.Clearly, Foulger-Pratt has stumbled upon something incredible here - all that was needed to do to resurrect the spirit of the Parisian salons of the Enlightenment was to design apartment buildings with common areas! We should expect a massive influx into Silver Spring by the world's intellectual elite, many of whom will inevitably be leasing apartments at the Citron as soon as construction is complete.
(Note that the Citron is the successor to the ill-fated Ellsworth Condos, which were billed at the time as being the "last word" in Downtown Silver Spring living.)
