Developers have proposed razing an apartment community on Georgia Avenue in the Forest Glen neighborhood of Silver Spring and replacing it with a building that more than doubles the number of units available to rent.

Developer MHP Forest Glen, LLC, submitted plans to the county Planning Board this week detailing a project that would yield a five-story apartment building with up to 189 units.

Initial plans show 111 units would be two- and three-bedroom and 78 would be one-bedroom, according to Planning Board documents.

On the property now is a series of garden-style apartment buildings with 72 units constructed in 1947.

Near Georgia Avenue’s intersection with Belvedere Boulevard, the project is about a quarter mile north of the Forest Glen Metro stop.

Also included in the project description is an assortment of public spaces including lawns and bike paths. A below-ground parking garage with about 190 spaces is proposed on the property.

More details about the project will be available during the later stages of the Planning Board review process.

A date for Planning Board consideration has not been set, according to online records.
