Construction remains on schedule at Patuxent Cove, the the new multifamily community at Pegg Road in Lexington Park, MD, being built by Conifer Realty and St. Mary’s County Development Corporation.
Team updates show the project on schedule and budget as the end of Maryland’s fiscal year 2019 closed July 30. Patuxent Cove, a 60-unit family, affordable housing development with veteran preference, is a Maryland Tax Credit winner and will play an essential role in preserving income diversity and affordable housing options in Lexington Park.
This new community on Pegg Road will feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom fully accessible apartments. Andrew Hanson, vice president of development at Conifer Realty, said, “Patuxent Cove is an important mixed-income development in Lexington Park that will bring high-quality affordable housing to the community. The spacious and well-planned units will feature veteran preference, which will ensure that homes to those who need it most, are provided in Maryland.”
Tax credit recipients provide training and hands-on learning in large-scale development for partnering nonprofits. In addition to growing its community service capacity, St. Mary’s County Development Corporation (SMCDC) will also coordinate and oversee resident services programming for the Patuxent Cove community.
The corporation’s ongoing partnership with Three Oaks Center will further enhance the veteran preference emphasis at Patuxent Cove. Three Oaks is a Maryland non-profit, that will refer qualified veterans to Patuxent Cove and assist them through the application process. Specialized care for the veteran families will be handled by Three Oaks Center as it relates to specific benefits and programs provided by the Veterans Administration.
Persons interested in this housing opportunity are encouraged to go to the Patuxent Cove website complete the interest list form and you will receive leasing information once it is available. Occupancy is expected in winter 2020.
