Gaithersburg, Md. — JBG Rosenfeld Retail and The Bozzuto Group have closed on the $28 million acquisition of 20 acres of land within the 182-acre Crown mixed-use development in Gaithersburg to build the retail and multifamily project Downtown Crown.
The property will include 260,000 square feet of retail space with 538 apartments. Harris Teeter has pre-leased 53,000 square feet of retail space and LA Fitness signed a 40,000-square-foot lease. The apartment units will be known as The Cadence at Crown, and amenities will include five courtyards, three outdoor kitchens, a pool, fitness center, yoga studio, business center, conference room and media theater.
