MOM’s Aiming For Fall 2024 Opening in Silver Spring

Courtesy Bozzuto

Back in September 2020, we reported on MOM’s Organic Market signing a lease with Bozzuto Development Co. and Stonebridge to take over the previous Montgomery Planning headquarters at 8787 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring. Since then construction has been ongoing at the new development, with plenty of progress as it moves closer towards completion. MOM’s is now targeting a Fall 2024 opening.

According to a report by Maryland Newsletters, MOM’s Organic Market recently pulled a permit for an interior fitout, valued at $1.5 million. “At 17,300 square feet, MOM’s is the retail core of a new Bozzuto and Stonebridge apartment building, nearing delivery, called the Atwell on Spring.”

In addition to MOM’s, developers are targeting up to four other retailers, which may consist of restaurants (full-service or fast-casual) a smaller gym or fitness-based business, and other types of potential businesses.

Atwell on Spring was initially going to be called Forte on Spring. The complex will include two six-story buildings that consist of 375 apartments, 47 of which will be moderately priced dwelling units (MPDUs). According to Source of the Spring, Atwell on Spring will also feature a pedestrian bridge and an underground parking garage.

Atwell on Spring is the redevelopment of the former Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, located at 8787 Georgia Avenue. The mixed-use project will redefine the northern gateway to downtown Silver Spring with two 7-story residential buildings with ground floor retail, and a mews-style public space. In total, the community will include 375 apartment units, 47 of which will be affordable units. Unit types range from studios to 3BRs and include several townhouse-style units along Spring Street, fronting Fairview Road Urban Park. Apartments will feature modern and refined finishes, with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and wood-like LVT flooring. Residents will enjoy over 13,000 SF of interior amenity space as well as two exterior courtyards and concierge service. In addition to the residential component, the project will deliver approximately 25,000 SF of retail space along Georgia Avenue. Notably, a 17,300 SF MOM’s Organic Market will anchor the Georgia Avenue and Spring Street corner. The public mews that will run through the property will also provide Atwell residents and neighbors with a walking and biking connection from the northern neighborhoods to Silver Spring’s urban core. Atwell will be welcoming its first residents in early 2024. The project partnership consists of Bozzuto, StonebridgeCarras, and Griffin Capital, along with lender partners with M&T and United Bank. The design team includes KTGY, Grizform, MPFP, and Bohler.
