ROCKVILLE, Md. — The Village at Rockville—A National Lutheran Community has selected Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. to build its Glenmere apartment homes expansion. The approximately $95 million expansion will be constructed on five acres within The Village at Rockville’s existing 31-acre footprint, and includes a 130-unit independent living apartment building with underground parking, an indoor aquatic center, fitness areas, and dining venues.

Designed by BCT Architects in Baltimore, a variety of one-and two-bedroom floor plans comprise the 130 units, ranging in size from 737-1,786 square feet. The project, managed by ARCH Consultants, Ltd., encompasses a total of 295,544 square feet, across two interconnected, four-story structures.

Construction is slated to begin fall 2018, pending final approval by the Maryland Department of Aging, with an anticipated opening in the fall of 2020.

“We are pleased to be working with Howard Shockey & Sons again, to make Glenmere come to life through their partnership and expertise,” Executive Director Kyle Hreben said. “Shockey assisted us in completing a planned renovation of our main building in 2015 and also built our sister community, The Village at Orchard Ridge, in Winchester, Virginia.”
