Real Estate Development


The Ardennes Multifamily project is a planned thirty (30) month development with twelve (12) months entitlement, design and engineering and eighteen (18) months of construction.  The zoning allows for this type of multifamily development – either as apartment or condominium. The development method is described by Montgomery County as the Optional Development Method. In this method, the developer incorporates sustainable and/or public benefit features. In exchange, the county allows for higher density of development. Montgomery County reviewed a preliminary sketch of Ardennes and is highly receptive to the project.

The site is approximately 1.711 acres and is located near Rockville Pike (Route 355) on Twinbrook Parkway.  There is an existing approximately 20,000 sq.ft. building currently on the site which would be demolished prior to the commencement of construction. The site is within walking distance of Twinbrook Metro Station on the Red Line & Montrose Crossing Shopping Center and sits within the coveted Washington, DC Metropolitan Statistical Area, (MSA) for our planned 190-Unit Five (5) story, planned multi-family project in Rockville, MD, a suburb of Washington, DC, known as the Ardennes Project.

Rockville, like much of Montgomery County, boasts a robust, diverse economy. Over thirty-five (35%) percent of the jobs located in Rockville are in either Public Administration or Educational Services, which can largely be attributed to the City’s status as the seat of the Montgomery County Government and the presence of Montgomery College’s largest campus in the system. Additionally, there is a wealth of jobs in the field of professional, scientific, and technical services as Rockville is located along the I-270 Tech Corridor and is home to numerous biotech, IT, and research companies. Rockville’s population is affluent and highly educated, with   more than sixty-two (62%) percent of the population holding a bachelor’s degree or higher. Rockville also has the lowest unemployment rate in Maryland at 3.6%, well below the U.S. average of 4.9%



  • Approximate Total Project Cost $48.0 to $50.0 MM USD
  • 155,230 square feet of rentable area
  • 32,912 square feet of parking (78 total spaces)
  • 37,105 square feet of circulation, parking, amenities and storage
  • 225,247 gross project square footage
  • Project sales value at disposition is currently at a sub five (5.0%) percent Cap Rate, with a strong opportunity to have the deal presold prior to ground breaking.
  • Strong location in the City of Rockville in Montgomery Country, MD
  • Experienced national developer combined with local expertise with Land-Use Attorney, Architect, Engineer, and Construction Manager (TBD).

PROPOSED UNIT MIX:  The average unit size of the planned units is 817 sq. ft.  The unit mix skews towards 1 bedroom, of which our concept calls for three (3) floor plans – Junior 1 Bedroom; 1 Bedroom; 1 Bedroom + Den. The other unit types are 2 Bedrooms and a 2 Bedrooms + Den.  The development concept was programmed with input from Noell Consulting.  Noell is the premier national apartment research firm.  Per Noell, “an ideal unit mix for this building should be heavily geared towards value-oriented professionals by including a healthy share of smaller Jr. 1 Bedroom units, while also offering more traditional 1Bedroom and 2 Bedroom/2 Bath units to appeal to more established singles and couples. Additionally, there is an opportunity to attract empty nester move-downs given their familiarity with the area, and the sites proximity to multiple town centers.”

Based on Noell’s detailed study of the market and neighboring comparable projects the following is the proposed project unit mix:

QTY Unit Type Unit Size SF
35 1 BD 1 BA 583
80 1 BD 1 BA 705
21 1 BD 1 BA + Den 860
50 2 BD 2 BA 1010
4 2 BD 2BA + Den 1190
190 Total Units

This unit mix reflects the rental demands of the area which is comprised of; fifteen (15%) percent young professional; twenty-one (21%) percent mature singles; forty (40%) percent professional couples; eighteen (18%) percent empty nesters and six (6%) percent roommates.
