Pennrose Celebrates Topping Out of Pointe View at Aspen Hill

September 27, 2018

Pennrose was joined by county officials and development stakeholders to celebrate the topping out of Pointe View at Aspen Hill, a new 120-unit mixed-income apartment community for seniors. Located on a nearly six-acre parcel in Aspen Hill, Maryland, the development includes 61 one-bedroom and 59 two-bedroom apartments. The development is being constructed by Harkins Builders and was designed by Architecture by Design.

Speakers at the event included Ivy Dench-Carter, Regional Vice President, Pennrose, LLC, Assistant Secretary Matthew Heckles, Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, Isiah Leggett, County Executive, Montgomery County, Maryland, and Nancy Navarro, Councilmember, District 4, Montgomery County Council, and Stacy Spann, Executive Director, Housing Opportunities Commission.

The affordable, independent living community will accommodate individuals who are 62 years of age or older and will offer on-site supportive services to help maintain and prolong residents’ ability to live independently. Of the 120 total apartments, 108 units will be allocated for residents at 30-60 percent of the Area Media Income (AMI), with 15 percent of the units designated as very low income.  

“Pennrose is committed to creating high quality developments that positively affect the lives of residents and neighbors alike,” said Ivy Dench-Carter, Regional Vice President at Pennrose. “The development’s location and nearby resources coupled with its on-site amenities, tailored programming and overall design will make Pointe View at Aspen Hill a fantastic option for Silver Spring’s senior community.”  

Pennrose has partnered with The Senior Connection, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing programs and services that preserve and foster independence, mobility and quality of life for seniors, to provide residents with transportation resources and programing to assist with daily living activities, such as managing bills or household paperwork.

Located at 3136 Bel Pre Road, Pointe View at Aspen Hill was designed to be energy-efficient and offers on-site amenities including a walking path, outdoor patio, fitness center, large community room, beauty salon, game room, computer room and parking. In addition, the development will be served by both the Montgomery County Transit Ride-On and WMATA bus lines and residents will be within proximity to retail, health care resources and the county’s largest senior center.
