A rendering of the proposed Steamers Seafood development
DC-based Novo Properties is in the process of purchasing the former Steamers Seafood House in Bethesda with plans to turn the site into an apartment building.
Bethesda Magazine reported that Novo plans to replace the one-story building at 4820 Auburn Avenue (map) with an 110 foot-tall development containing 58 apartments atop up to 2,800 square feet of street-level retail.
Zoning regulations for the site allow a maximum height of 90 feet, but the developer will likely seek an exception in exchange for designating 15 percent of the apartments as moderately-priced.
The Seafood House closed in August of 2015; the vacant building was condemned after snow caused a portion of the roof to cave in in January. Novo Properties director Neil Goradia shared that the sale is expected to close on June 10th.
