New Community Planned at Westfield Wheaton Town Center

39UP Offers Refreshing Style and the Ultimate in Convenience to Area Homebuyers

CABIN JOHN, MD--(Marketwired - Mar 28, 2014) - Two-time GALA Home of the Year award winner, OPaL, announces their newest community in Montgomery County -- 39UP. OPaL is known for finding prime properties in highly desirable locations and 39UP is no exception. In fact, the community gets its name from its extraordinary location on the 39th latitude, adjacent to both the Westfield Wheaton Town Center and the Wheaton Metro station.

39UP will be OPaL's premier Montgomery County project, featuring 34 townhomes and 6 single-family homes. The 4-story townhomes will have 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and a 2-car garage, while the 2-story single-family homes will have 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. Both will feature unique, contemporary farm-home architecture. Facades will feature materials like cedar, concrete and standing seam metal roofs along with translucent garage doors on some of the units.

However, the jewel in the crown of 39UP is its location. Situated across from Westfield Wheaton Town Center and its more than 150 stores, everything from groceries and fashion to movies and fitness is right outside residents' doors. Another block away is the Wheaton Metro, making the entire Washington, DC region easily accessible for work and play.

"39UP will offer a lifestyle of walkable convenience," states Sean Ruppert, OPaL's president. "With its proximity to Westfield Wheaton Mall and the Wheaton Metro, residents will spend less time driving and more time enjoying their lives. This could be our most accessible community yet!"

The homes at 39UP will be designed by award-winning architect, Gregory Sparhawk. Sparhawk brings a unique aesthetic to all his designs, satisfying the tastes of those who seek something beyond the region's trademark Colonials. The townhomes at 39UP will be priced from the upper $500s, the single family homes will be priced from the upper $800's

Other current OPaL projects include Canal Mews, a small enclave of coastal graystones in The Palisades, DC and Morton Street Mews, a community of 26 eclectic condominiums situated between DC's Petworth and Columbia Heights neighborhoods.
