Three-Tower Project in North Bethesda Delayed Again: Figure 1

A plan to build three towers on Rockville Pike is getting another extension on its review period.

Saul Centers hopes to build two 300-foot residential towers and a 200-foot office building on Rockville Pike, stretching east to west between the Pike and Woodglen Drive (map), Bethesda Now reports. The developer received feedback on the project in a pre-planning meeting in December. Saul Centers asked for and received an extension in December, and this second request for an extension will likely be approved.

The biggest issue at the moment? Transportation officials aren’t excited about putting in three new intersections on Rockville Pike in order to provide access to the towers, nor do they want three new intersections on Woodglen Drive.

The planning board set a tentative date to discuss the developer’s plans in mid-April.
