A 75-acre site located on Greentree Road near I-270 and I-495 (map) may eventually be home to 330 new homes.
Bethesda Beat reports that Toll Brothers, who won the rights to the land with Winchester Homes in May, has been meeting with residents and community groups as it creates a proposed design for the site. Currently, the proposed plan includes 330 homes. Because the land is zoned for medium density and the developers have no intention to introduce any commercial uses, they don’t need any special exceptions.
Development of a school or park was initially floated for the site and the Toll Brother’s proposal for more houses- in an already congested area- has made for some heated discussion. Fifteen percent of the land is legally required to remain a public space and developers are using the meetings to lay out plans for this space, in addition to the proposed houses.
The firm doesn’t own the land yet, as it wants to get approval on its proposal prior to closing on the sale. Reports are that the final price tag for the 75 acre site could be upwards of $75 million.
