Rendering for North Bethesda Market II.

It appears that the tallest residences planned for Montgomery County could be moving forward.

Late last week, Friends of White Flint reported that The JBG Cos. will be holding a public meeting on June 10 to “review amendments to previously approved plans” for North Bethesda Market II. Specifically, they are looking to decrease the commercial space and add more residential units.

As it is proposed right now, the project will consist of 347 residential units in a high-rise structure and a larger complex with 120,000 square feet of retail and 150,000 square feet of office space along Rockville Pike, between Nicholson Lane and Executive Boulevard (map). At about 300 feet tall, the residential building will be the tallest in Montgomery County.

At the beginning of 2013, STUDIOS Architecture and ArchiBIM released revamped renderings of the project, but UrbanTurf learned late last year that it would likely be awhile until work moved forward on the project.

It is not the scale of the project that excites, but rather the striking design.

The facade is comprised largely of glass, and a couple smooth sides are juxtaposed with blockier aspects which have boxes jutting out at random intervals. One of the cooler features is a cascading pattern of residential terraces that form a horseshoe formation over the rest of the building.
