The Blairs, located in Silver Spring, Maryland, is a new mixed-use, transit-oriented neighborhood. Replacing a suburban development of large buildings set within parking lots, The Blairs is bringing a new urban vitality to the area through mixed-use development and revived connections to the regional park system and downtown Silver Spring.
Sasaki’s urban design vision for the development is coming to fruition as the first apartment building of the development, with 284 units, is set to welcome its first tenants in February. Sasaki assisted in the re-zoning of the site and landscape architecture for the new tower, called The Pearl. The construction of this residential building will be a significant step towards realizing the vision of this new, dense, well-connected community.
