A 168-unit townhome development planned for the middle of a Bethesda office park received unanimous approval from the Montgomery County Planning Board on Thursday.

Developer EYA has plans to redevelop the Rock Spring Industrial Park in Montgomery County — bounded by Fernwood, Rockledge and Rock Spring Drives (map) — into a townhome development totaling 168 units, with 21 homes set aside as affordable.

“We have worked with the county to create plans for a dynamic community with a lot of open space in the heart of one of the county’s most active retail and office markets and within walking distance of major employers and existing and planned transportation infrastructure,” McLean Quinn, EYA Vice President of Land Acquisition and Development, told UrbanTurf. “It’s a creative, compatible use of land that supports the tax base at time when demand for commercial property is lagging.”

Groundbreaking is expected to start in early 2015 with move-ins are estimated to begin in 2016.
