The Montgomery County Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA) participated in financing to support preservation and renovation of 87 units of deeply affordable family-size apartments at Snowden’s Ridge. APAH, a nonprofit developer headquartered in Arlington, VA, acquired Snowden’s Ridge in 2019 to preserve a deeply affordable rental community. The 87-unit complex will maintain in-place housing choice vouchers for all residents, making it accessible to families at 30 percent or below the area median income (AMI).
The property, located at 2035 Harlequin Terrace, Silver Spring, held its grand reopening celebration Friday. This is APAH’s first property in Montgomery County, as well as the State of Maryland.

Known as The Parks at Walter Reed, the project is turning the once-cloistered site into a neighborhood for thousands of residents. A large part of the campus — which D.C. acquired from the federal government for $22 million in 2016 — was opened to the public last year for the first time in decades. Three residential buildings have been finished so far: The Brooks, an 89-unit condo building, opened earlier this year and now 60% sold, while The Vale, a neighboring apartment building with 301 units, is starting to lease up this month; a separate building was converted in 2019 to 77 units of housing for veterans experiencing homelessness.
