Representatives of the Naval Support Activity Bethesda are holding an open house Thursday night to solicit public input on plans to build a multistory education and research laboratory and parking garage at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences on Jones Bridge Road.
Plans call for the construction of a new building with a pedestrian bridge that connects to existing university facilities, according to an NSAB announcement. The building would be roughly 480,000 square feet and include about 125,700 square feet of underground parking.
The open house, which will include poster displays of the proposed construction, will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the National 4-H Conference Center, 7100 Connecticut Ave., Chevy Chase. Those who attend will be able to formally submit concerns they would like to see addressed in the project’s environmental assessment, the announcement said.
NSAB provides for base operational support for the university and other major tenants of its Bethesda installation off Rockville Pike, including Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, according to its website.
