Edgemont at Bethesda Metro Apartments II

(240) 482-8166

Project Overview

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.

Ongoing and Upcoming Work

Construction will kick-off the beginning of September, 2019.

The first construction activities that the neighborhood can expect to see over the first few months include:

  • Installation of the construction site fencing and sediment control
  • Installation of the Maintenance of Traffic measures
  • Demolition of the single family house that currently resides on the property
  • Installation of piles around the perimeter of the site for support of excavation
  • Excavation down two levels for building parking

Work with Potential Noise

Installation of the support of excavation piles will be drilled to reduce noise; however, the installation process, even with drilling, requires heavy machinery that at times will be noisy. Similarly, the Demolition and Excavation processes will require the use of heavy equipment and trucking of excavated materials. 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.

Roadway and Sidewalk Impacts

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.
