Two weeks ago, we covered the slew of residential developments on tap for 14th Street. In our next roundup, we head to downtown Bethesda, which is having a bit of a development boom. (Without DC’s height restrictions, these buildings tower.)
Note: We realize that we may have missed one or two projects, so just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it in.
8300 Wisconsin Avenue had a rocky history when The Patrinely Group needed to pull out when they couldn’t secure enough pre-sales. Current developers StonebridgeCarras are now constructing a 359-unit, 430,000-square-foot apartment building at the address. Harris Teeter will be anchoring the project, and construction will take 20-24 months.
The Bainbridge Companies is bringing a 17-story, 200-unit apartment building to 4918 St. Elmo Avenue, a few blocks to the northwest of the Bethesda Metro station. The project broke ground in 2011, and should be complete in the near future. The floorplans vary from studios to two-bedrooms with dens, and the building will feature amenities like a rooftop pool, an outdoor terrace and underground parking.
Developers PN Hoffman and Stonebridge Carras are currently constructing The Darcy, an 88-unit condo project at Bethesda and Woodmont Avenues. With prices that range from the $750,000 to $3 million, these units fall into the “luxury” category and were designed by SK&I Architects. Features include floor-to-ceiling windows and a front desk concierge.
The Fairmont is a 17-story, 72-unit condo building at 4990 Fairmont Avenue that is estimated to break ground in 2015. As was recently reported, developer Starr Capitol is proposing to allocate four ground-floor studio spaces to artists. Units will vary in size from 900 to 3,000 square feet, and there will be 100 parking spaces.
In addition to The Darcy, PN Hoffman and StonebridgeCarras are also developing The Flats, a five-story, 162-unit apartment building in downtown Bethesda. The two projects are part of the same complex on the corner of Woodmont Avenue and Bethesda Avenue to the southwest of the Metro. The project is currently under construction.
EYA is working on a townhome project dubbed Little Falls Place at 5400 Butler Road near Friendship Heights. While not right in downtown Bethesda, the 30 new homes start at $1.4 million and have high-end features, like elevators and rooftop terraces. They will be located next to a woodsy locale near the Capital Crescent Trail.
The first phase of The Gallery, from Donohoe Development Company, will include this 17-story, 234-unit apartment building. The building is currently under construction at 4800 Auburn Avenue, and may be ready for move-ins by the end of the year. Ground floor retail is planned.
The second phase of The Gallery will include 221 more apartment units, as well as ground floor retail.
JBG is currently working on the plans for 7900 Wisconsin, a 17-story, 475-unit apartment building. Groundbreaking is planned for 2014, and would take two years to complete. The design includes significant green space that would be open to the public.
The Lauren will be a 7-story, 25-unit luxury condominium project at 4901 Hampden Lane. Units will range from 1,400 to 5,000 square feet. The proposed design includes windows on all four sides, rooftop gardens with patios, a fitness room, a community room and two levels of underground parking.
Toll Brothers will build a seven-story, 60-unit condo project at 4915 Hampden Lane across from the Shoppes of Bethesda. The project will have underground parking and sales are set to begin next year.
