There’s been a major step forward for East Village at North Bethesda Gateway on Nicholson Lane and Huff Court, located just half a mile from White Flint metro. The Planning Board will review the Preliminary and Site Plan tomorrow, and the Planing Department staff recommends approval with conditions of the Preliminary Plan and the Site Plan
East Village will be built in two phases. Phase 1 will have up to 382 residential units, 416 parking spaces, and up to 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Phase 2 adds up to another 232 residential units. Eventually, there could be up to 34,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space at East Village along with 701 parking spaces. As always, 12.5% of the residential units will be MPDUs. Both residential buildings will be up to 85 feet high.
The main residential lobby will be located along Nicholson Lane, with a secondary access from the plaza, and access to individual units along the through block connection. A private dog park will also be provided as well as swimming pools, a tot lot, and a gym for residents.
A great community amenity will be an urban plaza that includes a fountain. The plaza will be surrounded by retail and restaurants and unite the two phases of the East Village at North Bethesda Gateway project. The plan also includes cycle tracks for bikes and plenty of bike parking spaces. More than 23% of the project’s land will be open space.
