BETHESDA CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: SOLAIRE BETHESDA LUXURY APARTMENTS (PHOTOS)
But here's some more-immediate positive news from the site: the previously-closed sidewalk along Wisconsin Avenue has reopened to the public, a great boost for pedestrian safety.
This site at 7100 Wisconsin Avenue was formerly home of the historic Eastham's Servicenter for almost 90 years, first as an Esso, then an Exxon. Eastham's auto repair and maintenance services moved to the corner of Fairmont Avenue and Old Georgetown Road when this property was acquired by WPC, and the Solaire was approved by the Montgomery County Planning Board.
The building in the background is Crescent Plaza, one of several residential buildings in Bethesda developed by Nathan Landow.
