SILVER SPRING, MD. — Washington Property Co. (WPC) and Montgomery County have signed an agreement to develop Progress Place, a homeless services center that will be located at 8110 Georgia Ave. in Silver Spring. The new facility is scheduled to break ground in a year, according to WPC. The first three floors of the facility will service the county’s homeless community and the fourth floor will feature 21 personal living quarters for individuals transitioning into permanent housing. Under the terms of the recently signed agreement, WPC will build Progress Place at no cost to the county and the county will operate the facility. WPC will obtain the deed to three contiguous land parcels totaling about 1.5 acres in exchange. The site of the current Progress Place sits in that parcel, which is located adjacent to WPC’s new Solaire-Silver Spring property at 1150 Ripley St.
