50 Monroe Place

Location: Rockville, MD
Size: 7-story building
Client: RTS DEVELOPMENT
Type: Multi-Family Urban Mixed-Use


Working closely with Main Street, a non-profit organization that empowers adults with financial, mental, and emotional needs with purpose and independence — 50 Monroe Place provides temporary and permanent affordable housing and emergency shelter for families in need.

This project aims to create an inclusive bustling hub on a tight metro-accessible site in Rockville, Maryland. Infused with Main Street aspirations, this 7-story mixed-use residential building engages the street level with mixed-retail. The entry lobby is lined with additional interaction opportunities in the cyber-cafe, fitness rooms, yoga studio, cooking class rooms and a movie room.

50 Monroe Place transforms a vacant lot into a vibrant and essential participant of the physical and social urban fabric. Here, residents of all types live in harmony and community needs can be met through meaningful work, play, connecting, learning and inspiration.
