The Laureate Apartments at Shady Grove Metro Now Open for Leasing (sponsored)

The Laureate, luxury apartments available at affordable and market rate located in Rockville, MD, is now available for leasing. The 268-unit community is a joint-venture partnership between Bozzuto, EYA, and the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County (HOC), and features a variety of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as an array of Moderately Priced Dwelling Units (MPDUs).  The elegant and inviting apartments are infused with fresh, modern finishes in the style of boutique hotels and resort spas and contain keyless entry, pre-installed Wi-Fi, open floorplans, sparkling tiled bathrooms featuring luxurious fixtures, and stylish kitchens with quartz countertops.

Located just steps away from the Shady Grove Metro and convenient to many of Montgomery County’s largest employers, The Laureate provides unparalleled access by Route 370, the ICC, I-270 and metro. The community also features upscale amenities, such as a top-of-the-line fitness studio and courtyard pool, a multipurpose creative studio, children’s playroom, pet spa, state-of-the-art clubroom (including a theater room), and more.

The Laureate is the first community developed at the Westside at Shady Grove development in partnership with the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County (HOC) to utilize the County’s Housing Production Fund (HPF). The Laureate provides affordability down to 50% of the Area’s Median Income (AMI), with 25% of The Laureate’s 268 residences being Moderately Priced Dwelling Units (MPDU) and an additional 5% set at workforce rates. While each of the residences are crafted to the same standard, the community utilizes natural textures and carefully curated art pieces throughout to create an elegant community for people of all backgrounds to find sanctuary and experience luxury living without sacrificing on design.
