OUR CORE PRINCIPLES
Federal Realty Investment Trust and Smart Living 360 have collaborated to create a new kind of community, The Stories at Congressional Plaza. The philosophy of Smart Living 360, the operating model behind The Stories, hinges on three core principles:

The Stories promotes social connection and creates true community.
Residents of The Stories are ensured opportunities to socialize and connect with their neighbors, family, and friends, as well as the community at large.
 
The Stories provides easy access to desirable services and amenities.
Residents of The Stories have walkable access to retail, dining, and transit options just steps from their door. Plus, residents have access to a la carte lifestyle and health services through our network of vetted service providers.
 
The Stories promotes simplicity of daily life.
Residents are afforded a lifestyle that allows them to focus on what is most important.
 
Unique to The Stories is the community’s Lifestyle Ambassador.
Part concierge, part confidant, part advisor, the Lifestyle Ambassador is charged with fostering an atmosphere where social connection is encouraged, facilitating access to amenities and trusted service providers, and helping to simplify daily life so that residents have the opportunity to focus on what is truly important
