Developers offer rent break to nearby workers -- Gazette.Net


The developers of Pike & Rose on Rockville Pike in White Flint are hoping that employees of nearby businesses will want to move into the new PerSei apartments and persuade their coworkers to do likewise.

Pike & Rose’s preferred employer program offers discounts on rent and some fee waivers if multiple employees from the same company rent apartments. The promotion is geared toward employees at nearby businesses, according to a news release from developer Federal Realty Investment Trust of Rockville, but is open to any company.

Rent discounts range from 1 percent to 3 percent, depending on how many employees rent apartments in the building. According to the website of the Bozzuto Group, which is managing the property, rents for one- and two-bedroom apartments range from $1,816 to $4,114.

The PerSei apartments are expected to open in May. A second apartment building, Pallas, is expected to open in spring 2015, according to the news release.
