Monument Village to Break Ground Next Wednesday

The official groundbreaking event for Monument Village in north College Park will take place next Wednesday Oct. 8th 2014 at  9122 Baltimore Ave College Park MD.  Please see the flyer below for more details.  Council member Denise Mitchell, Alan Hew and Mary Lehman are expected to speak.


If you plan to join, please RSVP to Pam Zandy at by this Friday.

Here is a brief description of the project I got from the developer:
Monument Village at College Park will consist of 235 residential units and 4,800 SF of retail space on the ground floor. The units will be a mix of studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms to attract young professionals, associate professors and graduate students. The building amenities will include a community room, media room, business center, outdoor pool and courtyard, bike share, and a dog wash station. Conveniently located between the University of Maryland College Park and I-495 with a Route 1 Ride Stop just outside your front door.

Monument Village will be designed to LEED® Silver standards and will feature the following green initiatives: ample bicycle storage, Zipcars on standby in the garage, Energy Star appliances, high-efficiency water fixtures and advanced lighting packages. The building will also include indoor air quality controls and low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) finishes throughout. Construction will include use of locally sourced materials to reduce transit waste and re-use of recycled demolition waste materials from the building site

    Did this ever happen? This is a pretty huge project for College Park and it fills one of the longest existing empty plots in the city. Yet, I have found no media coverage of the event. Not even on this site. Was there media coverage at all?

    Yes, it happened yesterday. Several elected officials from the City and County were there. I saw a few folks taking pictures, but not sure if they were from any media outlets.
