The proposed Edgemont II project will develop the land immediately adjacent to the Edgemont at Bethesda Metro apartments located at the corner of Edgemoor Lane and Woodmont Avenue.
The Project proposes to redevelop the Property with up to 301,193 total square feet of residential development (including 115,193 existing square feet to remain in the existing 72-foot-tall Edgemont I building) with up to 282 multifamily dwelling units (including 122 existing units to remain in the existing Edgemont I building), in a 150- foot tall new residential building.
Separated bicycle lanes are planned for both Edgemoor and Woodmont and will be constructed as part of this project. You can see them on the image below.
The Project will construct the Bethesda streetscape on its two frontages and will participate in the implementation of new separated bicycle lanes on Woodmont Avenue and Edgemoor Lane. Each of these improvements will improve access, mobility, and pedestrian safety.
Bicycle racks or lockers will be provided within the garage and short-term spaces will be provided along the Property's frontage, with final location to be determined at time of Site Plan, to facilitate bicyclist access to the Property.
They expect a groundbreaking in the 2nd quarter of 2019 and two years of construction.
