First phase will have 220 units; total project could have about 2,200
From Bethesda Beat
Plans are moving ahead for the first phase of a 2,200-unit development in North Bethesda. The project will create a walkable neighborhood near the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station.
The first phase of the Strathmore Square project will have 220 units in two buildings along Tuckerman Lane. One building would have 50 units and 93,000 square feet, including 3,500 square feet for retail. The other building would have 170 units and 212,000 square feet, with 7,000 square feet for retail. Both buildings are expected to have apartments, although the smaller one might be condominiums.
Work on a new parking garage at the Grosvenor metro has been completed. The garage will have an area to park about 100 bicycles.
The Planning Board’s early approval in 2018 was for a project with 1.9 million square feet, including an 11-story hotel, retail space and office buildings. For now, though, the developer is focused on the two buildings in the first phase.
