14 Projects to Watch in the Next Wave of Development

If you think there are a lot of construction projects in the Bethesda area now, just wait. Here are 14 projects that have yet to start construction.


8008 Wisconsin

Area: Bethesda

Developer: Douglas Development

Status: In the Planning Department approval process

This 14-story, 140-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail earned the distinction of being the first project to be affected by the county’s 2013 master plan for bus rapid transit.

Because of additional right-of-way required for a yet-to-be designed or funded bus rapid transit route down Wisconsin Avenue, Douglas Development had to give up nine feet of sidewalk on its side of the road.

The developer had to give up an additional 10 feet of right-of-way near the corner of Cordell and Wisconsin avenues to make way for a planned bus rapid transit station.

When the project is finished, it could mean a wide swath of unused sidewalk that looks completely out of place and that’s reserved for a transit project with an uncertain future.

Timeline: Uncertain
