Solaire Wheaton is a 361,000 square foot Type IIIA five-story wood-frame construction structure over a cast-in-place concrete podium with two levels of sub-grade parking. Residents enjoy dedicated access to many amenities, including a private resort-style swimming pool, landscaped courtyard, a fitness center, Wi-Fi café, demonstration kitchen, and easily-walkable proximity to a Metro station and new Safeway and Costco stores. Solaire Wheaton is built on a tight (1.76 acre) site. With 232 alcove studios, one- and two-bedroom units, the owner achieved 131.82 dwelling units per acre. The project is LEED Silver-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Prior to construction, materials from the demolition of the previous structure were largely recycled and diverted from landfills.
