One of the tallest new residential towers planned for Bethesda could get a key approval this week. 

The Montgomery County Planning Board is expected to approve Metro Tower, a 25-story, 390-unit development at 7316 Wisconsin Avenue (map) from developer Saul Centers. Fifteen percent of the apartments will be moderately-priced dwelling units. The project, designed by Torti Gallas + Partners, would replace a five-story building at the address. 

The development plan would also improve the adjacent public plaza and enlarge it from 4,672 to 9,183 square feet by razing the two-story building that constitutes unit C-2 of 4800 Hampden Lane (map)
