Grady Management is pleased to announce a 49-unit expansion at East of Market Apartments in Frederick, MD. The expansion project achieved its LEED for Home GOLD certification and builds on the already successful East of Market Apartments carbon footprint. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Designs (LEED) certification program from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recognizes “best-in-class” building strategies that avoid toxic chemicals, reduce material waste and lower energy and water use. Developer and Owner, The Duffie Companies have committed to green building practices while focusing on durability and performance. The project was completed in January 2021 and will bring the total number of luxury apartments to 209.
East of Market Apartments is the first LEED Home GOLD and ENERGY STAR apartments in Frederick, MD. The community prides itself on reviews and has recently achieved the “Resident Satisfaction Award 2020”, “Top Rated Apartment Ratings Award 2020,” and “Power Rankings Elite 1% Award”. It thrives on raising the bar in creating a happy and healthy living environment.
The newly constructed building is 4-stories, controlled access, and offers elevator convenience. Within the first floor, you will find 23 attached garages equipped with Level 2 EV charging stations, 11 storage areas, a billiard, and an e-lounge. With the addition of an outdoor cinema lounge, bocce ball court, community garden, car care area, and putting green, it is clear that long-term holders, The Duffie Companies, are passionate about building a lifestyle.
Thoughtfully designed one and two-bedroom floorplans utilize many existing fixtures and finishes; however, there are some distinct changes. With East of Market looking to stay relevant in trends and development, they developed the new “G” floorplan. It is considered the “multi-generational” apartment with two entry points. All two-bedroom apartments were upgraded with walk-in showers, and first-floor apartments have a terrace patio with a gate. All floorplans feature open-concept designs that connect the kitchen, dining area, and living room into one great space. Durable and easy to maintain wood-style floors, 9-foot ceilings with crown molding, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and in-home washers and dryers provide luxury, convenience, and create character. By adding more windows, your apartment will flood natural light and subsequently aid in reducing utility consumption.
With COVID-19 precautions in place, on-site management has found innovative and unique strategies to leasing and unveiling the expansion. The first residents of East of Market’s new phase were welcomed to the community in January 2021, and the building is 41% occupied as of February 2021. While the leasing office is closed to the public, they offer virtual tours of floor plans online and self-guided tours seven days a week! The community website allows you to view the latest 3D technology in virtual tours, schedule a self-guided tour, view live rates and availability, and apply online.
