In a significant addition to the housing landscape of downtown Rockville, Md., a brand-new high-rise apartment community, Residences on the Lane, has recently been completed. This development is dedicated to providing affordable housing options for individuals aged 62 and above.

This includes 23 apartments for households with incomes at or below 80% of the Washington, DC-MD-VA Statistical Area Median Income (AMI), 88 units for those at or below 60% AMI, 24 units for those at or below 40% AMI, and 15 market-rate units.
Residences on the Lane affordable housing features
Situated within the walkable Rockville Town Center, residents are just footsteps away from the village green, a diverse array of restaurants, an assortment of shops, and numerous cultural centers. The architectural design of Residences on the Lane places a strong emphasis on creating a bright and refreshing living environment, incorporating biophilic elements throughout the community to enhance the well-being, happiness, and health of its residents.
The interior designer, Hartman Design Group, was influenced by their belief that affordable housing should go beyond basic shelter by fostering a sense of community and well-being, with a focus on aesthetics, nature, and collaboration to create healthy homes for diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.
The community promotes socialization with a comfortable resident lounge, club room with a catering kitchen, and a dedicated maker room for residents to "pursue their crafty and creativity side." The high-rise also holds a fitness center, wellness center, and yoga room.
