Renderings For 17-Story Bethesda Apartment Project


The developer of a proposed 17-story, 475-unit apartment at 7900 Wisconsin Ave. wil go before the Montgomery County Planning Board for approval on Feb. 14. In the presentation from Chevy Chase-based developer JBG are renderings, shown but not released to the public during two public meetings in December, of what the potential high-rise could look like. It will include a yet-to-be-named grocery chain and marketplace on the ground floor, accented by a walk-thru and gathering place under a "bridge" in the middle of the structure. Planning Staff has recommended the Board approve JBG's project plan and preliminary plan at next week's hearing. JBG was originally going to develop both the 7900 site and the properties just to the north into a project that included the new 2nd District Police Station. But that joint plan with Montgomery County fell through after JBG did not acquire all of the properties that run up against Cordell Avenue. The building as proposed will include 22,000 square feet of ground floor retail. It would run about 275 feet along Wisconsin Avenue with the “bridge” or arch in the middle for pedestrian access similar to the Bethesda Lane pedestrian and retail area at Bethesda Row. The average unit size would be somewhere around 785 square feet. Parking garage access for residents would be on the Woodmont Avenue side of the building. A JBG official at the December presentations said he doesn't think the apartment will allow for more than a 0.7 parking space per unit ratio because of the property's proximity to Metro.
