Another public meeting for 8008 Wisconsin project, now with more retail space
New landowner Toll Brothers City Living will likely be detailing what changes it plans for the 14-story residential building first proposed by Douglas Development. 8008 has been stalled for more than a year after Montgomery County made some arbitrary demands of Douglas for a Bus Rapid Transit right-of-way that can't possibly be extended all the way to Bethesda Avenue as proposed.
The latest description of the project is a 115-unit mixed-use tower with up to 6195 SF of retail space. Those who are concerned about activating the streetscape will note the retail/restaurant space has increased by about 1,400 SF from the original Douglas proposal.
Plan to attend the public meeting on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 at 6:30 PM at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center at 4805 Edgemoor Lane.
