Bethesda construction update: Pike & Rose Phase 2 + 930 Rose condos go on sale (Photos)

Phase 2 of Federal Realty's Pike & Rose development is now rising from the ground in North Bethesda. If the two-story frame of a future building wasn't evidence enough, the sales office for the luxury 930 Rose condos will open on-site tomorrow, May 13.

The office will be located at 11572 Old Georgetown Road, next to the Pallas apartments. Sales wiil be handled by McWilliams|Ballard. A grand opening event will be held tonight at City Perch at Pike & Rose from 6:00-8:00 PM; you can RSVP online.

930 Rose will offer 104 condo units atop the future Canopy by Hilton hotel. Federal Realty is touting it as a rare condo building in the Mid-Atlantic region to offer hotel services and amentities. The 20-story building will offer a 21st-story 4600 SF rooftop garden terrace with outdoor seating and a dog park. A club room will boast a "chef-inspired" kitchen and fitness center.

Many of the loft-style units will feature 9 foot ceilings, window walls with Mecho shades, balconies and terraces, Italian kitchen cabinets, gas stoves and cast iron tubs. There will also be many personalization options available. The building will have an address on the future Rose Avenue at the development.

Robert- I do not understand why you are so negative about the Westbard project but do not seem to really care about Pike + Rose. Please explain so I can have a better understanding of the difference. Tnxs!

Still no firm word on Neighborhood Restaurant Group. You'd think spring would be the ideal time to open a beer garden. Wonder if they are backing out...

7:47 AM My take on Pike & Rose vs. Westbard:

Pike & Rose is down the street from a Metro station and is right on the Pike, which is heavily served by transit.

Westbard is not walking distance to any Metro station and is served by one Ride On bus and one T2 bus with sporadic service.

Lots more daytime pictures from Dyer of late. I guess perpetually overcast weather is OK for vampires?

Aside from the transit differences, Pike & Rose is a self-contained development and not in the middle of an existing residential neighborhood.
They took an old shopping center and commuter parking lot and turned it into it's own little city.
It is not part of the entrance or exit from older existing houses.

Anonymous said...

8:01 AM Yeah, I agree. Also, the Pike is and always has been a destination for massive retail and commercial spaces. Westbard Avenue is not, and never should, be Rockville Pike!

Westbard needs more of a village center, not the massive development planned approved by the Council.

"It is not part of the entrance or exit from older existing houses."

Neither is Westbard Avenue.

"Westbard needs more of a village center"

Which is exactly what's getting built. Pike & Rose is building 20 story buildings, Equity One is building 3-5 story buildings.

What exactly is your idea of a village center? A collection of huts?

Robert- does your mom prefer Pike & Rose or Westbard?

"the two-story frame of a future building"

The two-story building at the Rockville Pike entrance will be REI. The one along "Towne Road" (Hoya Street) is being leased by another retail tenant.

"rare condo building in the Mid-Atlantic region to offer hotel services and amentities"

Rare, but increasingly common. In Baltimore nine stories of condos are being finished above the 21-story Four Seasons hotel. Similar developments are happening in Philadelphia, Jersey City, and other cities in the Mid-Atlantic.

@12:22 pretty sure you're the Dyer "Fanboy". People trolling Dyer are not fanboys, in fact they're the very opposite.

Also you're the one who's total "dumass" material if you honestly thing it's one "lone troll" on here. You're as delusional as Bobby D himself!

You're still misinterpreting the definition, bit I'll try explaining it to you. A fanboy of Mr. Dyer would be hostile against those who disagree with Mr. Dyer, not the other way around.

In any case, something tells me that the commenter throwing around the term "fanboy" is Mr. Dyer himself, or a close friend. The pattern of loony conspiracy theories, nonexistent logic, and petty insults is eerily familiar.

Thank God most journalists don't believe success depends on how many attaboys a writer gets from the elected officials they cover...
I don't think that's a success metric discussed in journalism school!

Maybe we expect too much if we think George Leventhal's friends can cover him objectively?

Anonymous said...

Is there a local Edward R. Murrow award for publications with the most attaboys from local elected officials? If not, can we petition for one?

It's disgusted to watch a writer having to service Leventhal.

No I don't work for Leventhal, Riemer, Elrich, Leggett, Equity One, Obama, Romney, Wall Street, reincarnated Josef Stalin, Kim Jong-un, the boogeyman, anyone else you delusionally think is out to get you. (Seriously, you should really talk to someone about that)

3:27: Serious question - if you really aren't a paid stooge for the MoCo political cartel, why can't you post under your real name? If your comments aren't the ravings of a political hack, why can't you stand behind them?

Ultimately, why aren't you man enough to state your real name?

I can do it - why can't you? This is why you currently have zero credibility.

Robert Dyer said...

5:34: No, just you, the troll. Hiding behind a screen, saying things you don't have the manliness to say in person - that's the definition of a coward. If you were a real man, you'd post your real name. The inability to do so also proves that you realize your name would be ruined, as well as your employers', if your crazy comments were connected to your identity.

Rhett Mitter said...

Crazy thought - maybe threads like these should be reserved for asking questions/sharing information about the projects highlighted in the post rather than picking on a guy like a bunch of middle school kids? I come to this site in the morning to read about what new stuff is opening up within walking distance of my house. Obviously, I'm in the minority because it seems like a lot of you come here just to post very unimaginative digs at a guy who just seems to run a pretty decent local blog. Kind of a waste of time to sift through all the comments to see if anyone, you know, had any meaningful information to share about the project referenced in the post. You seem to have more free time than the guy you chastise for having too much of it himself.

I'm 5:34. How was my simple question trolling again?

Anonymous said...

6:49 I'm gonna take a guess here. You took what Dyer specifically said to a specific person, twisted it around to make it seem as if he was insulting everyone.
You may not be THE troll, but you do this often and are more obvious than you think.

Robert said...

I would say it's quite a fair question, especially considering dyer consistently insists there is only one lone troll.

Agree with Rhett. This is a good local blog that does not seem to be beholden to outside and outsider interests. If Mr. Dyer chooses to let people post anon (unlike other sites) and let the sunlight hit the trolls, I'm gonna call those trolls out. A troll's job is to control the conversation, obfuscate fact, manipulate and disrupt. If readers of this blog call you on it, that's a good thing. We don't care about your "timekeeping" either, it's irrelevant (what a shocker).

The only Dyer "critic" I've ever seen using a full name here is when George Leventhal posts.

Traditional role of the press is to have a critical eye on elected officials, not to seek attaboys.
