At 7820 Wisconsin and 7815 Woodmont avenues in downtown Bethesda, Maryland, there are plans for a brand new high-rise that could end up being one of the city’s tallest buildings. The residential building would reach up to 314 feet tall and would take the place of a 7-Eleven and some EagleBank properties. The gross square footage would surpass 380,000 square feet.
According to Bethesda Magazine, the structure would house roughly 300 units with approximately 8,000 square feet of retail. At least one-fourth of the units would be designated for affordable housing. The sketch plan application is expected to be filed by the end of the year. There are no reports yet on the timeline of the project.
Another tower in the works is a 250-foot-tall mixed-use development only a block away from the Bethesda Metro station. The address is on Wisconsin Avenue with plans for a groundbreaking in 2019.
