The Eden Wins Monument Award


The Eden, an Elm Street Development project in Baltimore, MD won the VA/MD/DC Builders Associations’ 2008 Monument Award for best rental high-rise (over 10 stories). The awards were presented at a gala on September 4, 2008 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor.

STUDIO39’s design for The Eden features a 6th floor terrace garden with comfortable seating areas and modern plantings and a 13th floor rooftop pool deck with views of Inner Harbor. These terraces provide residents with much needed space in which to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting and offer areas for dining, conversation and recreation.

The Monument Awards, presented yearly, are sponsored by the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association and the Maryland-National Capital Building Association and recognize superior home design and community site planning in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The project was judged on its overall design including floor plan, value and curb appeal. More information about the award can be found at
