Maxwell Square Townhouses
The Maxwell Square townhouse development on 5th Street in historic downtown Frederick has been sitting motionless since c. 2007, when the real estate market came to a screeching halt, including new homes. In 2013, Comstock Homes purchased the remainder of the development, which then consisted of only the homes built on 5th Street.
This summer, construction has resumed, and two of the remaining six townhouse sections are almost completed. See the following photo slide:
Towns at Maxwell Square in Historic Frederick Md
The Towns at Maxwell Square, a townhouse development of 49 units, has two models, The George and The Frederick, with 2400 square feet, starting in the high-300’s. Both models are 4 stories with 3 or 4 bedrooms, 2 full and one or 2 half baths. The 4th floor is a spacious loft.
When the homes were first planned, the original builder had 42 floor plans approved by the Historic Commission. The plans had numerous bedroom configurations, some had an elevator, some had a first floor 2-car garage.
The kitchens are well-appointed with a Chef-Inspired luxury package, granite counters, designer cabinets, upgraded appliance package and many other deluxe features. Balconies, hardwoods and open floor plans are just a few of the charms.
The master bedroom is equipped with walk-in closet and luxurious master bath. Luxury and modern amenities with the historic feel and look.
The Federal style architecture fits in perfectly in the historic downtown Frederick neighborhoods. Brick and siding exteriors for easy maintenance, as well as landscaped common areas that are kept within a Condominium association structure.

A Little Back-Story
The story of this community seems is just short of a saga. After much negotiation with the Historical Society the original developer, the Churchhill Group, managed to tear down all but 3 of the existing homes on the block, located at 30 East 5th Street, Frederick. They built the units on 5th street, and renovated the 3 existing homes. Then the real estate market went south in 2007.
The original designers managed to create a style on the inside that is modern yet reminiscent of the Federal style in its details. They have 49 lots total. Now Comstock is continuing with two sections almost completed.
The development has earned the EPA’s Energy Star label. This means they are significantly more efficient than a standard home, at least 30 percent more efficient than the national Model Energy Code and 15% more efficient than the state energy code, whichever is more rigorous.
