The downtown Bethesda residential pipeline continues to grow.

SJ Investments is proposing to replace the small multi-unit buildings at 4526 and 4530 Avondale Street (map) with a 7-story building, delivering 60 units.

The unit mix will span from studios to one-bedrooms with dens, and nine of the units will be moderately-priced. There will be up to 21 parking spaces on a below-grade level. Perkins Eastman is the architect.

Massing options.

The development team shared plans with the community on Monday night and many attendees expressed concern about how the building would set a precedent on the block, and whether the parking would be sufficient. 

A representative stated that Montgomery County requires 24 parking spaces for the residential units provided, but that county planning staff told the team at a preliminary meeting that they would be comfortable with no parking on-site.

The development team expects to file a preliminary plan application by the end of the month.
