MHP Celebrates Transformation of Halpine Hamlet in Rockville
MHP hosted an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Halpine Hamlet on September 10th to thank investors and showcase the $3.38 million green renovation of the 67-unit property near the Twinbrook Metro station in Rockville.
More than 60 partners, local elected officials, community leaders, and residents joined MHP to tour the property, which was acquired in September 2009 from the Slavin family of Bethesda for $5.9 million. The renovation occurred in two phases and focused on making much needed energy-efficient upgrades to the 46-year-old property. These included replacing the roofs and installing high-efficiency HVAC systems, new windows, kitchens, bathrooms, energy-efficient appliances and lighting, ceiling fans, and interior doors. The renovation was completed in December and created 35 jobs.
A brand new playground was installed on May 4 after Rockville resident Shari Ashman gave a generous donation and invited her family and friends to help build it on her 70th birthday. The playground has become the focal point of the property, where residents sit and talk to each other, watch their children play together safely, and bond as a community.
