Conceptual massing for 7820 Wisconsin Avenue
About a year ago, discussion swirled around Montgomery County’s approval of what would be the tallest building in Bethesda, a two-tower project that will replace the Apex building on Wisconsin Avenue. Now, a new proposal may deliver an even taller property just blocks away.
Developer entities Bethmont and Bethesda Land are partnering up to replace the 7-Eleven and Eagle Bank at 7820 Wisconsin Avenue (map) with a 30-story mixed-use project.
The development would deliver 319 residential units above two ground-floor retail spaces. Amenities will include a roof deck, business center, library and “sky lounge”; the roof will also have a light-up “landmark” element. A below-grade garage will provide 150 parking spaces. Eighty of the apartments will be moderately-priced dwelling units (more than the minimum required).
Design Collective is the architect on the project. If approved, delivery would likely be in 2021, factoring in a 12-18 month approval process and two years of construction.
