Residence Inn Designed by BBGM for Silver Spring

The 14-story Residence Inn hotel building designed by BBGM Architects is scheduled to be built at 8600 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland, as reported by the Washington Business Journal. With 5,000 square feet of meeting space and a rooftop terrace, the extended stay property will serve business travel and weekend demand. The design of the building is based on the history of Sliver Spring. 

 

In 1840, Francis Preston Blair discovered a spring flowing with chips of mica. The transformation of rock by water flow created dynamic shapes out of a very static element. This natural effect gave way to the birth of Silver Spring, an ever transforming community itself. The design of the hotel building uses this story as its inspiration. 

 

An excerpt from the Washington Business Journal:

“That location is not really good for office or apartments,” he told the WBJ. “It’s a good hotel site on a prominent corner in the middle of downtown Silver Spring.”

The group is working with BBGM Architects and Studio Partnership interiors. The property will include 5,000 square feet of meeting space, underground parking for 28 cars and a rooftop deck, Eden said. It will also have about 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

 

The Residence Inn Silver Spring will be managed by Marriott International with delivery scheduled for 2020.
