Guardian’s Redevelopment Plans Receive Initial Approval

Montgomery County Planning Department gave preliminary approval to the project at the corner of Executive Blvd. and Old Georgetown. Often called the Guardian property, it is located at 6000 Executive Blvd. It would be the first redevelopment in the White Flint 2 sector plan area and would be build in three phases.  There will be about 925,000 square feet of development, including 364 senior living homes. You can read the view the sketch plan submitted by Guardian here.

According to Bethesda Beat, “The “iconic” office and retail tower at the corner of Old Georgetown Road and Executive Boulevard would be the tallest building at about 200 feet in height, while one of the residential buildings—with about 233 homes—would be about 150 feet tall. At about 70 feet in height, a 131-unit structure would be the smallest of the new buildings because of its proximity to a neighborhood of single-family homes.

Guardian’s plans would provide 100,000 square feet of open space, including a bike path along the southern edge of the property that would form the first piece of a trail envisioned by the sector plan. A pocket green or plaza is proposed for a space along the larger residential building, and a half-acre neighborhood green would stand next to Old Georgetown Road.”
