Moratorium aside, the downtown Bethesda residential pipeline moves forward.

Developer BF Saul has revealed plans for a mixed-use project which would replace all of the buildings (and the alley) on the block bound by Wisconsin Avenue and Tilbury Street from Highland to West Virginia Avenues (map). The nine-story building would deliver up to 350 apartments atop up to 15,000 square feet of retail fronting Wisconsin Avenue.

The project would also deliver a 70 foot-wide, publicly-accessible park which would span the Tilbury Street side of the project. There will also be 345 parking spaces across three below-grade levels. Torti Gallas + Partners is the design architect.

The development team expects to file both sketch and preliminary plan applications within the week, setting them up to possibly get a Montgomery County Planning Board hearing in July and file the more detailed site plan application in the fall.
