AVA Wheaton, a 319-unit development targeted at young, hip, urban renters, may finally be moving forward, according to a report by East MoCo published Thursday morning.

The blog reports that developer Avalon Bay has requested a construction permit from Montgomery County for the site, which is located at the intersection of Georgia and Blueridge Avenues.

AVA is a subsidiary brand of Avalon Bay, a developer known for upscale apartments. AVA was introduced a few years ago to diversify the company’s renter. It targets young, urban renters and emphasizes location and cool design. AVA H Street, the first of the brand’s projects in DC, features an electric car charging port, “chill spaces” with WiFi, and apartments WITH chalkboard walls.

AVA’S other DC development is in Van Ness, and AVA NoMa is currently under construction and is slated to open in 2017.

    I'm sure the design will be nice after it is constructed. But this rendering makes it look like a cheap, quickly-outdated building. Update your software Mr. / Ms. Architect.

    Have to agree with you on that. Same design the Gavin on Pike is doing. Plus is real brick outlawed? All that siding and not a lick of brick I can see rendered. You have to have texture contrast for the project to look quality. Brick cost more in labor but when used in the right spots it just gives the building a solid, ment to be there look. There are existing new apartments in Wheaton that are not fully rented FYI. Get some brick on there Mr?Ms Architect! Thank you.
