More Changes Coming To Cordell Avenue


UPDATED The last year brought some new bars and new life to Cordell Avenue in Bethesda. More is likely on the way. Expect a new restaurant and bar at 4848 Cordell Ave., which now is the site of a men's transitional homeless shelter leased by Montgomery County and operated by Catholic Charities. Local architect Steven J. Karr lists the project as in the works for prominent Bethesda landlord Lenny Greenberg. Using the same basic sketch design he used for Roof, Karr lists the project as a 4,200-square-foot change-of-use that will cost $1,000,000 and that has a projected completion date of November 2014. The county will consolidate the homeless shelter with a women's shelter in North Bethesda. Tommy Joe's owner Alan Pohoryles is nearing the debut his new Roof bar and restaurant at the corner of Cordell and Norfolk Avenues, across the street from Brickside (4866 Cordell Ave.), the Prohibition-themed bar and restaurant that opened in January. Smoke BBQ (4858 Cordell Ave.) opened earlier in January a few doors down. It also appears Smoke BBQ will have a new neighbor. Bethesda Magazine says longtime pizza takeout joint Victor's (4860 Cordell Ave.) has finally closed. Greenberg is still looking for someone has found a tenant to take the vacant former space of the flagship California Tortilla franchise, which moved across the street in 2012. Greenberg said the incoming tenant does not yet wish to be identified. Rendering via Steven J. Karr
