A new senior apartment complex with affordable units in downtown Silver Spring is named after former County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett.
The Leggett, at 1315 Apple Avenue, is 16 stories with 238 of 267 units designated as affordable. It offers one and two-bedroom units for residents ages 62+. Rents will range from $1,161 to $2,096, County Executive Marc Elrich said Thursday at the building’s dedication ceremony.
The community will have a wellness center affiliated with Holy Cross Hospital. The future South County Regional Recreation and Aquatic Center will be adjacent to the building.
The Leggett is a Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County community.
The first tenants are scheduled to move-in this month, according to the county.
