Solaire 8200 Dixon, a 26-story, 403-unit apartment tower in Silver Spring’s Ripley District, has topped out. The building will become the tallest building in Silver Spring and house the area’s first food hall/city market, which will be open to the public.
The Design Collective-designed tower will include a rooftop fitness center, a pool a sky lounge, a club room with co-working facilities, a catering kitchen, 24-hour concierge and package service, a pet spa, and two guest suites for residents’ use. Of the 403-units, 75% will have one bedroom, with the remainder having two bedrooms.
The building is a five-minute walk to the Paul S. Sarbanes multimodal transit station, with Metrorail, bus, commuter rail, and trail connections to downtown Washington. The Ripley District includes a mix of dining, shopping, housing, employment, and entertainment options. When completed, the district will be home to 3,000 people with over two million sf of mixed-use development.
In addition to Design Collective, the build team also includes Clark Construction Company as the general contractor and Washington Properties Company as the developer.
