As we’ve posted before, the new Conference Center Garage starts construction this summer. The garage will replace the existing North Bethesda Conference Center surface parking lot with a six-level parking structure containing 650 parking spaces. Click here for the Planning Department’s staff report.
The garage is part of the Western Workaround which builds a grid system of streets in that part of the White Flint area.
The staff report recommends, among other things, that the garage provides a minimum of 6 car-share parking spaces, 10 spaces for motorcycles or scooters, and 7 parking spaces ready to be converted to electric vehicle charging stations. Staff also want the garage to offer a minimum of 38 bicycle parking spaces. . They also want artwork or green-wall treatment to enhance the appearance of the garage facades.
Here are a few pictures of the Western Workaround and the new garage from the Planning Department report.
