The LEED Gold Certified East of Market Apartments is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Maryland Energy Administration Grant. We are now fully equipped with an amazing fifty (50) brand new LEVEL 2 EV charging stations.
Residents of East of Market will now be able to participate in the EV revolution!
The adoption rate of electric vehicles is expected to skyrocket in the coming years. While, this trend will be unreachable to most apartment dwellers, the residents of East of Market are now ready to go!
Our new equipment from ClipperCreek® (Model: LCS-30P) will connect with every electric vehicle sold in North America (vehicles from certain manufacturers like Tesla will require a simple adapter).
If you have not already done so, please take a look at the new electric vehicles from Ford (Bolt), Tesla (Model’s S, 3, X, & Y), Kia (Niro), and Hyundai (Kona) to name a few. Or, consider a quality pre-owned EV which has never been more affordable (did you know that you can purchase a pre-owned EV that is less than 5 years old for less than $10,000?)
Join the EV revolution and join us at East of Market.
A Letter About The East of Market Community and Our Charging Stations and Electric Vehicles
The East of Market team received the following letter from one of our residents. The letter focuses on our community amenities, including those for electric vehicles:
“My name is Shane; I live at the fabulous, East of Market Apartments with my angel of a husband Tyler, and our little chorkie Jaxwel. We are previous residents of the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York. East of Market has been home for us now since September of 2015. When we were searching for a place to call home, a local family member advised we check out East of Market. Love at first sight, as we toured the community it was very evident that EOM was not just going to be a home but an elevated level of living. From the stunning vistas, fit and finish to the LEED level of efficiency. We do not have children, but our little Jaxwel seems to have taken on the role. EOM welcomes our furry family members with open arms! The grounds are set up for you to tend to, tidy up after, and even a private wash station. Not to mention the ideal location if your commute involves any of the major highways going through Frederick. As my husband and myself both have offices in Rockville, with all things considered this was not a difficult decision to make.
When we first came to East of Market we had noticed something we hadn’t seen up to this point anywhere else, an electric vehicle level 2 charging station. We did not currently have an electric vehicle however, but became intrigued. After some time in the area, getting familiar with traffic and HOV lanes we started to take into consideration that this may not be such as scary thing to make the transition to an electric vehicle. With the level 2 accessible station outside at East of Market and level 2 capabilities in particular private garages, the decision was becoming even easier. With level 2 bringing the vehicle to a full charge would only take a few hours. The decision was becoming easier and easier. Now a few years later we are on our second electric car and the benefits are fantastic. Whether it is never having to stop at the gas pump, the maintenance, well there isn’t really any to speak of, just being able to use the HOV carpool lane easily will cut 20 minutes off my commute, and knowing that the trees might stay a little greener along my travels really allows it to come together nicely.
There is still some development needed for the infrastructure to support long range travel for electric vehicles but as fast charges become more popular along the highways and major shopping centers bringing your car to full charge in as little as 10 minutes, the option is becoming more and more approachable for people. Should you make the jump know that East of Market is there to help power you through it!

The East of Market team wants to highlight one of our exceptional community features: the integrated garages. These garages allow residents to park directly underneath their apartment building, so they can easily transport groceries and other items up from the car to their apartments without going outside in the elements.
These garages are complete with Level 2 charging capability, the ideal spot for an electric vehicle. For those who own an electric car, East of Market would be a great apartment community for you!
Out of concern for the health of our employees and residents, our offices will be virtually open effective March 16th until further notice. We have suspended office tours and are offering virtual tours during this time. Please contact us for details. Thank you.
