A living room at The Orion.
The Orion Condominium, located in downtown Silver Spring (map), is a real estate anomaly: free of the compromise buyers associate with condo-buying in an urban market. The boutique four-story, 46-unit building is heavy on modern amenities, designer finishes and custom details. And perhaps best of all, The Orion’s one- and two-bedroom condos are priced from the mid-$200,000s to the mid-$300,000s—a fraction of the price urbanites are accustomed to paying for homes of comparable quality.
The Orion is now over 50 percent sold out, but both one-bedroom and two-bedroom condos are still available.
One-bedroom units (some with dens) range in size from 665 to 712 square feet, while two-bedrooms range from 997 to 1132 square feet. All are available for immediate delivery and include a catalogue of top-of-the-line amenities, like wide plank flooring, ceramic tile baths and showers, granite kitchen countertops, full-size washers and dryers, balconies and garage parking.
Residents have access to a fitness center and huge rooftop deck complete with grills and a glass-enclosed lounge (check it out below). The roof is accessible by the building’s eco-efficient elevators and also includes a green space.
The rooftop lounge.
The Orion is located less than a mile from hundreds of restaurants, cafes and pubs (like Quarry House Tavern and Olazzo), the Silver Spring arts district, and Rock Creek Park. Aside from its proximity to everything downtown, The Orion is also in an ideal spot for access to public transportation: it is a short distance from the Silver Spring Metro station on the Red Line; it's flanked by three bus shelters; and the VanGo shuttle service (which makes 25 stops in downtown Silver Spring) stops just outside the building.
