NIC TALK: A Journey from Isolation to Connection
Mr. Frederick, Founder & CEO of Smart Living 360, describes a future where people can trade the individual isolation of their single family homes or institutional isolation often found at Shady Acres for rich connections in next generation housing in intergenerational, walkable mixed-used locations. It turns out that this future is happening today.
Smart Living 360 was created by innovator Ryan Frederick with a vision of developing residential communities that serve as the centerpiece of well-being. Our surroundings encourage greater purpose, social connection, physical & financial well-being and sense of community. This is desirable at any age and advances in science & technology, among other factors, are increasing longevity and causing us all to rethink the best way to live. Smart Living 360 was started to redefine how living environments can complement our visions for a successful life.
Created by Smart Living 360 and Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE: FRT), The Stories at Congressional Plaza is a new kind of community designed with well-being in mind. Building on its key principles of connection, access and simplicity, The Stories provides residents a compelling combination of smart design features, walkable location, and impeccable service. This 48-unit apartment community, located in Rockville, Maryland, is part of Congressional Plaza, a 380,000 square foot community shopping center anchored by The Fresh Market, The Container Store and Last Call by Neiman Marcus. The Stories is now open.
