On Tuesday, September 18, MM&C Land Development attorneys Jody Kline and Soo Lee-Cho joined representatives of Victory Housing, Inc. along with Montgomery County executive, Isiah Leggett, and Cardinal Donald Wuerhl, Archbishop of Washington, at the groundbreaking for Victory Court. The 86-unit Victory Court Project will consist of one and two-bedroom mixed-income apartmentsfor independent elderly residents that will provide an affordable, amenity-rich housing option for seniors that is conveniently located close to downtown Rockville. The project addresses the growing need for affordable housing for Montgomery County seniors, the fastest-growing segment of the county’s population. Victory Court will be constructed on a 3.47 acre parcel of land owned by Montgomery County and leased to Victory Housing in an agreement negotiated by MM&C attorney, Robert E. Gough, on behalf of the organization. Victory Housing was represented by MM&C’s Land Development team in its successful application for approval of a senior housing special exception and related site plan, preliminary plan, and final record plat approvals from the City of Rockville and represented the organization in proceedings before the Montgomery County Circuit Court, the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland and the Court of Appeals.
