JBG project at former Thyme Square building underway in Bethesda (Photos)

Developer JBG Companies requested a sheeting and shoring permit from Montgomery County in late July, for its project constructing a new retail building on the site of the former Thyme Square restaurant at 4735 Bethesda Avenue. Construction contractor Coakley Williams has fenced off the property, which is right by the Capital Crescent Trail and the green space by Mon Ami Gabi and the Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema.

JBG has publicly only shown a larger retail structure with a largely glass facade labeled, "Market", as you can see in my earlier post linked to in the above paragraph. This is one part of a block-length JBG project along Bethesda Avenue that also includes 7200 Wisconsin Avenue, and 4733 Bethesda Avenue.

Wish they would release more details about the project.

Was there ever a public hearing?

The trail is getting pretty ridiculous there. But I guess when they start building the Purple Line that will be a moot point for a few years.

7:47: There was a community meeting, but not a public hearing on this smaller retail project. Other elements of the larger plan have gone before the Planning Board over the last decade.
