4990 Fairmont, a 17-story, 72-unit condo project in Bethesda, is on the docket to be approved by the Montgomery County Planning Board on April 3, BethesdaNow reports. Located at the corner of Old Georgetown Road and Fairmont Avenue (map), 4990 Fairmont is one of just a few luxury condo developments planned for the DC suburb.
The project is set for its site plan review and approval on Thursday, April 3 at the Montgomery County Planning Board. The project, from Chevy Chase-based Starr Capital, will fulfill its public space requirement by dedicating 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space to the county for art studios that would be managed by the Bethesda Urban Partnership.
The condos would sit on floors 6-17 of the development, while two of the first six floors would be used for artist space and the four other levels for above-ground parking. Four large units — ranging in size from 1,800 to 2,800 square feet — will sit on the building’s top six floors.
If approved, 4990 Fairmont could break ground in the fourth quarter of this year.
