More details emerged at a community meeting on Monday night about the new development proposed behind Bethesda Row.
Federal Realty is proposing to deliver 245 apartments above 12,000 square feet of retail at Bethesda Avenue and Arlington Road (map). The developer is committing to approximately 18% of the residences being moderately-priced dwelling units (MPDUs), so the building will have an extra story above what is allowable by-right, making it 100 feet tall plus penthouse.
The Hickok Cole-designed development will create an interior "private passageway" between the L-shaped new construction and Bethesda Row. The retail will have folding garage doors.
Between below-grade parking, the remaining surface spaces, and a mechanized stacked system, there will be roughly 245 parking spaces. Many of the apartments will have balconies, and there will also be a bike room on the ground floor and a roof deck with pergola.
The development team is hoping to submit sketch and preliminary plan applications within the next few weeks.
