On Tuesday, August 16, 2022, the Soto team attended the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at The Lewis in Suitland, Maryland. It was great to see our work come to fruition, and celebrate this milestone with Mission First HDC, the Prince George’s County Redevelopment Authority, L.A. Bolden Company, The Henson Development Company, as well as many others who contributed to the success of this development.
The celebration shone a light on how the completion of The Lewis is a positive step for affordable senior living in Prince George’s County. The completion is also a monumental milestone for the up and coming Towne Square at Suitland Federal Center, as it is the key component to the ever growing community of Suitland.
During the ceremony, the Soto team’s hard work was kindly acknowledged by Sarah Constant, Senior Vice President of Mission First HDC. She noted that our hard work and attention to detail helped bring their vision to life… a beautiful result made possible through our dedication to the project. They also showed pride in how Soto’s attentiveness to the project led to a completion that was not only on-time, but also below budget.
The Lewis consists of 137 units, comprising 111,000 square feet, and rising six stories tall. The Lewis so far has welcomed 99 residents, and we can’t wait to see the community continue to grow. The Lewis also provides residents with a club room, rooftop terrace, yoga room, fitness center, and party room. These spaces, as we already witnessed on Tuesday, encourage residents to gather, communicate, and remain physically active… creating a community of their own.
"While at the ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting some of the current residents living there. One excited new resident invited the Soto team into his apartment, in which he told us how he loved his spacious two bedroom apartment. He not only loved the open kitchen and living concept to entertain his guests, but also the fact that the second bedroom is spacious enough to welcome his guests to stay over. It was exciting to meet a current resident who has made this beautiful project his home, and to see how enthusiastic he was about sharing his space with the design team."

It was heartwarming to meet the residents at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and see how living in the Lewis and our attention to detail has made an impact on these residents’ lives. We are proud of the completion of The Lewis, and the impact we are not only able to make on the Suitland community, but also, for affordable senior housing in the DMV!
