Frequently Asked Questions
Do we have a pet park?
Unfortunately, due to limited space, we do not have a pet park. However, there's plenty of green space throughout the neighborhood where residents are able to walk their pets- please remember to clean up after your pet.
Can I add an occupant to my lease?
Yes. Please contact the Leasing Office to initiate the process. A background check is required, and an application fee of $25 must be paid to begin the process. Upon approval, a Lease Addendum must be signed to add another person to the lease.
Are utilities included in rent?
Rent does not include utilities, and residents are responsible for electric and water. Each apartment is individually metered for both utilities, so you pay for your usage. Upon moving in, new residents are required to set up an account with Pepco and Studebaker Submetering. Residents receive a monthly bill for both.

No, Montgomery County Fire code does not allow for grills to be placed/used on balconies.
