Developer To Present Plans For Bethesda Condo
The developer of a planned 17-story, 70-unit condo building near downtown Bethesda is wasting little time. Chevy Chase-based Starr Capital and partners will present plans for the building at 4990 Fairmont Ave. at the monthly meeting of the Woodmont Triangle Action Group on Friday morning, about a month after news of the project first broke. The property must still be rezoned, a process officials with the development team said could take two years. A BP gas station and small office building currently sit on the site, which near the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Woodmont Avenue is in a prime location for infill development. Property owner Jay Hellman has long envisioned a more urban, transit-oriented land use for the site and surrounding sites in Woodmont Triangle. After the BP gas station closed last year, he toyed with the idea of creating a space for food trucks to gather. The Woodmont Triangle Acting Group meeting starts at 8 a.m. in the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane).
