The Edgemont project will transform the corner of Woodmont Avenue and Edgemoor Lane through the development and construction of a new 15 story, 154 unit multi-family property. Incorporated into the building is an exciting glass and metal panel facade that will match the curve of Woodmont Avenue and tie the building to its surroundings. The project will also create a new public green space along Edgemoor Lane, providing a new neighborhood amenity and greatly improved streetscape experience.
Concrete operations are currently working on the 14th floor with only the 15th and roof top areas to go.
The purple board that can be seen installed at the exterior of the building is the sheathing, it is now going up on multiple floors across all elevations. Following closely behind is the air and water barrier which is a blue membrane that gets adhered to the sheathing, this can be seen going in on the second and third floors. Over the next couple of weeks, the facade finishes will start to be installed which will allow for the kickoff of more activities inside the building which are more water sensitive.
The overhead protection around the project is now complete and walkways are opened back up. Utility work continues around the project, which at times will require traffic to be flagged around work taking place in public space.
COVID-19: At this time the project remains open and is following the guidance provided by State and Local Public Health officials. Should anything new occur regarding direction from Federal, State or Local officials in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will keep you informed on how it will affect the project. In an effort to practice social distancing to the extent possible, work hours onsite will extend from 7am to 7pm.
Current and upcoming activities include the following:
It is reasonable to expect some noise with all the large equipment and truck activity throughout these phases, but we will work to minimize the impact as best we can. Construction activities will abide by Montgomery County’s requirements for schedule and noise.
Through multiple coordination meetings with MCDOT and Bethesda Urban Partnership, we have developed a plan that provides pedestrian access around the project site. In order to accomplish this and allow for safe construction deliveries, the project will utilize the curb lane along the west side of Woodmont Avenue and the curb and one drive lane on the north side of Edgemoor Lane. The roadways around the project will receive new construction signage and temporary striping to direct traffic accordingly. During the early stages of the project there will be periodic daytime sidewalk closures necessary for new utility crossings. The pedestrian path of travel along Woodmont has been shifted off of the sidewalk and along the concrete barriers that run down the curb lane, this configuration will remain in place for the majority of the project.
