Atop the Grosvenor Metro station, D.C.-based Fivesquares Development plans on working with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to construct nearly 2 million square feet of development on a 14-acre site. Washington Business Journal reports that the Montgomery County Council unanimously approved the master plan for the project, known as Strathmore Square.
With construction expected to begin in 2019, the developer will construct retail and up to 1,600 residential units (both apartments and condos) in approximately 160-foot-high mid-rise buildings along Tuckerman Lane and 300-foot-high buildings along Rockville Pike. There will also be a central, one-acre park.
According to Washington Business Journal, the project will first expand the existing Metro station garage by 412 spaces and replace an existing surface parking lot.
