This Thursday, the Montgomery County Planning Board officially granted developer Carr Properties site permission, enabling them to construct what will be Bethesda, Maryland’s tallest buildings, towering almost 300 feet high. Bethesda Magazine reported that the Planning Board voted unanimously in favor of a sketch plan change and site plan.
Located at 7272 Wisconsin Avenue, the approximately 940,000-square-foot project will feature two mixed-use buildings, an underground Purple Line station, and an entrance to the Bethesda Metro Station. 360,000 square feet of the space will be for office use. There will also be 480 residential units.
Bethesda Magazine reported that demolition will begin this year, but did not specify when exactly.
