The redevelopment of downtown Bethesda under new zoning regulations hasn't slowed down a beat.
Last Thursday, the Montgomery County Planning Board granted conditional approval of an application to more than double the number of units at the planned apartment community at the corner of Edgemoor Lane and Woodmont Avenue.
The Edgemont Bethesda II development would deliver a 15-story building to 4885 Edgemoor Lane (map) with ground-floor commercial space, 160 apartments and two below-grade garage levels with 74 parking spaces.
The new building, along with 2,957 square feet of public space, will replace a single-family home currently on the site. Designed by SK+I Architecture, balconies feature prominently on the east, west and south façades.
Both apartment towers will share the same drop-off driveway, loading berth and garage entrance. Fifteen percent of the newly-constructed apartments will be moderately-priced dwelling units.
The first Edgemont Bethesda building at 4903 Edgemoor Lane, also owned by applicant Equity Residential, contains 122 units across 8 stories.
