Silver Spring, one of Montgomery County’s most vibrant and attractive communities, features an urban commercial center surrounded by conveniently located, comfortable, and beautiful neighborhoods. Silver Spring regularly attracts regional and national attention, as new stores and restaurants, world class entertainment facilities, and businesses of every variety decide to start or expand here. And with a population of more than 500,000 Silver Spring is one of the fastest-growing places to shop, eat, and live.
Greater Silver Spring encompasses a large portion of southern and eastern Montgomery County. Bordered by Washington, D.C. to the south, Prince George's County to the east, and Howard County to the north, and served by major highways, Metro, and three major airports, Silver Spring's location and amenities make it a sought-after location in which to live and work.
The Silver Spring Metro station is being expanded to include MARC commuter rail, bus, and bicycle commuters in the new Paul S. Sarbanes Transit Center, currently under construction. Private development is planned above the transit center that will include residential units, retail shops and a hotel.
