Washington Property Company (WPC) has big plans for the site of its Bethesda headquarters.
In partnership with Douglas Development, WPC is proposing to build a 262 foot-tall building at 4719 Hampden Lane (map), delivering 150 residential units, 350,000 square feet of office, and 10,000 square feet of retail. Shalom Baranes Associates is the architect.
The office space would sit above seven floors of residential space, and the building will include biophilic design principles with outdoor spaces created by deep setbacks between the residential and office floors. The roof deck may be shared between the office tenants and residents. There will also be roughly 250 parking spaces on 3-4 below-grade levels.
Up to 18% of the residential will be moderately-priced dwelling units, enabling the development to be one floor taller than permitted in the Sector Plan. The retail level would be 23 feet tall, with entrances along the building's three street frontages, and there could potentially be an indoor/outdoor café at Hampden and East Lanes.
The development team expects to submit a sketch plan application to Montgomery County early next month. More detailed designs are likely to be released during the joint preliminary and site plan application phase.
