The NRP Group Breaks Ground on 272-Unit Apartment Community Outside Washington, D.C.

CLARKSBURG, Md., Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The NRP Group, a vertically integrated, best-in-class developer, builder, and manager of multifamily housing, has broken ground on The Axiom at Cabin Branch, an upscale 272-unit rental apartment community in Cabin Branch, Montgomery County’s new neo-traditional development in Clarksburg, Maryland.

Axiom will be directly adjacent to the new Clarksburg Premium Outlets, an upscale outlet mall developed by Simon and New England Development, located off on I-270 and MD. Route 121 interchange in Montgomery County, Maryland, 30 miles north of Washington, D.C. and 50 miles west of Baltimore.

"We’re thrilled to bring this development to Cabin Branch as our first step into the Washington, D.C. market," said J. David Heller, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at The NRP Group. "Axiom will offer a unique lifestyle choice for future residents who will be able to enjoy shopping and entertainment options at their fingertips, while in close proximity to the I-270 employment corridor."

Axiom will be the only rental community in Cabin Branch. At full build-out, Cabin Branch will feature about 1,600 residences, both for sale and for rent, with for-sale residences developed by upscale builders Winchester Homes, Ryan Homes, and NVHomes. The idyllic setting of The Axiom at Cabin Branch in western Montgomery County includes working farms and orchards, horse and biking trails, kayaking, and other opportunities for outdoor recreation in the adjacent 93,000-acre Agricultural Reserve and the 2,000-acre Black Hill Regional Park.

Axiom will consist of a mix of luxurious one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes. The units will feature plank flooring, 9-foot ceilings, spacious walk-in closets, modern kitchens with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and European-style cabinets. Amenities will include a resort-style pool, pool deck with fire pits, grills, and big-screen TVs, a state-of-the-art fitness center, social and recreational gathering spaces, a dog park, interior bike storage, a tot-lot play area, and package reception services.

The NRP Group is developing Axiom with equity partner Parse Capital and with construction financing provided by First National Bank of Pennsylvania.

"NRP has an exceptionally strong reputation in the markets in which they develop and an excellent track-record of executing a great product," said Nicholas Killebrew, Head of Originations at Parse. "We are eager to watch this development come together and to continue partnering with NRP on future projects."

Axiom marks The NRP Group’s first construction start in the D.C. metro area, a logical step for the national developer that has been expanding into several new markets that boast robust economies with strong job and population growth. In 2017, The NRP Group opened an office in Gaithersburg, MD, and hired industry veterans Joseph Torg and Josh Wooldridge as co-heads of its Mid-Atlantic Development office.

Torg and Wooldridge are responsible for sourcing and executing NRP’s ground-up multifamily development pipeline. In addition to The Axiom at Cabin Branch, Torg and Wooldridge have generated a robust pipeline of multifamily deals from Baltimore to Richmond.

"With this groundbreaking, it’s clear that Josh and Joe bring the right mix of experience and local knowledge, enabling The NRP Group to expand its development and construction best practices to this new market," added Heller. "We are delighted to have them on board and expect more great things to come."
