Located in Silver Spring, Maryland, The Pearl is a modern multifamily community, designed to balance urban convenience with the need for occupants to retreat from daily life. The first phase of a 20-year master plan to redevelop the historic Blairs Apartments, the 27-acre area space will eventually include 2,800 residential units, as well as office, retail, and hotel space, connected by five acres of parks, playgrounds and gardens. Expansive windows, terrace doors and curtainwall systems enhance natural light throughout the project’s three buildings, enabling residents to connect with nature. Apartments maximize light and offer occupants views of Rock Creek Park; the courtyard and each elevator stop are also designed for maximum light and unobstructed views.⠀

The players: Architect, Design Collective; general contractor, Clark Construction; contract glazier, Engineered Construction Products Ltd.; glass manufacturer, Vitro Architectural Glass; metal systems supplier, Kawneer Co.⠀
