TOWER CRANE CONSTRUCTED AT THE LAUREN CONDO SITE IN BETHESDA (PHOTOS)
A tower crane was installed at the construction site of The Lauren ultra-luxury condos in downtown Bethesda Saturday. The installation required temporary closure of a block of Woodmont Avenue. Speaking of closure, while the construction site has a nice covered and lighted pedestrian walkway on one side, the Woodmont side's sidewalk is closed. This closure would require a permit or else it is illegal, a problem at several current downtown construction sites which the Montgomery County Council appears utterly impotent to stop.
