3852 Fire


Early this morning, tragedy struck, especially for those residents living in 3852, when a fire broke out in one of the units, and quickly spread, causing the Fire Department to condemn the building until repairs can be made. That means 14 units, 14 families, part of our community are, for the time being, without their homes.

Further details are still coming in, but the Red Cross was on site arranging immediate short term housing for the impacted residents.

Once I know more, I’ll provide further updates, and let you know if there’s anyway you might be able to help. For now, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Temporary Heat Outage for 3800-3814 on Jan 4th, 2018

Building on the earlier hot water post, as stated in notices posted in their respective entrances, buildings 3800 through 3814 will be temporarily without heat on Thursday, January 4th, 2018, from approximately 9am until hopefully no later than 2pm (and ideally even earlier) due to a necessary emergency repair.

Domestic hot water should not be affected.

Please DO NOT attempt or arrange any work to be done to your unit’s heating lines; the heat could be turned back on at any time.

Thank you.

Hot Water Issues

Over the weekend we had several boiler outages and our engineer is closely monitoring the boilers to make sure we don’t have any more issues this week.

Currently, GBM is running with only two boilers and due to the extremely cold weather they have been unable to keep up with demand. Management has ordered a third boiler and if all goes well it should be up and running by the end of the week, but until then residents may experience outages and lower than usual hot water temps (~120 degrees).

If you notice hot water is running cold, please notify management (301-986-4166) as soon as possible so it can be corrected.


Thank you for your patience
