"A Taste of Manhattan" – The Washington Post celebrates The Lauren

The innovation and sophistication of The Lauren is making waves beyond the borders of Bethesda.

The modern elegance, eco-friendly design, and unparalleled amenities – coupled with its location in the heart of downtown Bethesda – rival any luxury condominium residence anywhere.

In a new feature from the Washington Post, Michele Lerner and Deborah K. Dietsch explore Bethesda’s newest condominium offering, and offer residents the chance to share the experience of life at The Lauren:

“We lived in a single-family home in Rockville for 40 years, but we’re both from New York City and wanted a walking lifestyle and a more urban environment. We looked everywhere over a few years and realized that Bethesda worked well because we can be close to our friends and to the things we like to do. We hardly ever use our car.”
