The First Baptist Church at 8415 Fenton Street (map) in Silver Spring is set to be turned into a 259-unit mixed-use development, reported the Washington Business Journal on Friday.

Lakritz Adler and Grosvenor will be developing the site in a joint venture. In addition to apartments, plans call for 19,000 square feet of retail space. They will also be building a new church for First Baptist on an adjacent plot.

SK&I Architectural Design Group is designing the project, which is located close to downtown Silver Spring, the Whole Foods Market and the Metro station. Construction is estimated to begin on the $80 million development by the end of this year or early 2014, and delivery is slated for the end of 2015.

    A key parcel. Glad to hear a chunk of the construction will be completed while the new library & residential building across the street is being built. The last thing we need is for everything to be staggered and end up taking 5+ years to fully finish.

    This is IN downtown Silver Spring, not close to it.

    Once again, I am incredibly impressed by the work of Robb LaKritz and Josh Adler. These guys just understand real estate development and how to work collaboratively with folks, in this case, the First Baptist Church of Silver Spring and Grosvenor. Hats off to them. www.robblakritz.com
