No Mixed-Use: Foulger-Pratt Proposes 348 Units for Bethesda Ourisman Dealership: Figure 1

Due to its location just steps away from Montgomery Mall, Foulger-Pratt is proposing to replace the Ourisman Ford dealership in Bethesda with an all-residential development, prolific Bethesda blogger Robert Dyer reports.

While the Montgomery County Planning Board previously approved a 64 foot-tall mixed-use development with 340 apartments above 12,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space for the site at Motor City Drive and Westlake Terrace (map), the development team returned to the community with a plan that removes any commercial component, but adds eight apartments.

The developer would also prefer to replace the approved underground parking garage with a surface parking lot.

Correction: The article previously stated mistakenly that a more detailed presentation of the development is planned for early next month.
