Bethesda construction update: Solaire Bethesda luxury apartments (Photos)

Work continues at the Solaire Bethesda luxury apartments site, at 7100 Wisconsin Avenue, formerly the home of Eastham's Servicenter. Pilings are now above street level.

The Solaire will be a 139-unit building, with 6100 SF of retail that will be anchored by a True Food Kitchen restaurant. First delivery of units is anticipated for February 2016, and completion is due by June 2016 - although it feels like the timeline is cutting it pretty close at this point. Washington Property Company is the developer.

What is the distance going to be between the crescent and these new units?

10:37: I'd have to go back for the exact measurement, but they are going to be very close.

Get your construction terminology right. "Pilings" are driven into the soil to support the building. What you're taking pictures of are columns.

Is the Solaire where they make Solaireanite?

Colonel Tom Edwards: Why is it so important that you want to contact the governments of our earth?

Eros: Because of death. Because all you of Earth are idiots.

Jeff Trent: Now you just hold on, Buster.

Eros: No, you hold on. First was your firecracker, a harmless explosive. Then your hand grenade: you began to kill your own people, a few at a time. Then the bomb. Then a larger bomb: many people are killed at one time. Then your scientists stumbled upon the atom bomb, split the atom. Then the hydrogen bomb, where you actually explode the air itself. Now you can arrange the total destruction of the entire universe served by our sun: The only explosion left is the Solaireanite.

Colonel Tom Edwards: You speak of Solaireanite. But just what is it?

Eros: Take a can of your gasoline. Say this can of gasoline is the sun. Now, you spread a thin line of it to a ball, representing the earth. Now, the gasoline represents the sunlight, the sun particles. Here we saturate the ball with the gasoline, the sunlight. Then we put a flame to the ball. The flame will speedily travel around the earth, back along the line of gasoline to the can, or the sun itself. It will explode this source and spread to every place that gasoline, our sunlight, touches. Explode the sunlight here, gentlemen, you explode the universe. Explode the sunlight here and a chain reaction will occur direct to the sun itself and to all the planets that sunlight touches, to every planet in the universe. This is why you must be stopped. This is why any means must be used to stop you. In a friendly manner or as (it seems) you want it.
