Developers Propose What Could Be Montgomery County’s Tallest Building

Developers Propose What Could Be Montgomery County's Tallest Building: Figure 1

Capital Properties is hoping to take Park Bethesda higher — up to even 300 feet, developers said at a planning meeting this week, according to blogger Robert Dyer. Specifically, the developer is talking about constructing two new residential towers, one that could rise 25-30 floors. At that height, the building would likely be the tallest in Montgomery County.

The proposed project would take the crown from the 24-story Market East, a tower at North Bethesda Market. But it would be vying for the title of tallest building in the county with North Bethesda Market II, a development proposed by the JBG Companies that would also rise 300 feet.

According to Dyer, Capital Properties proposed adding two high-rise towers of different heights to the Park Bethesda complex and moving parking underground. Heights proposed for the towers included 300’/150’, 200’/150’, and 250’/150’. The project could include as many as 700-1000 units, developers said.

    Good. I hope MOCO gets it together and approves this concept. Urban planning like this is a great idea. It keeps green space green both up and downcounty. In other words, this would provide housing for LOTS of people with a minimal environmental impact. Good luck to Capitol Properties. PLEASE do a traffic study and widen River Road or at least provide a turn lane between Little Falls and Western. Also the light at River and Western is an abomination, that intersection needs some real work.
