Pike & Rose as you've never seen it before (Photos)

Here's a view you can't likely get of the Phase 2 construction at Federal Realty's Pike & Rose development in North Bethesda, unless you own a drone or a helicopter. These photos were taken by Clark Construction from the tower crane high above the property.

Poppy - want to bring out your "bad girl" side and go for a quickie in the parking deck here?

Robert, I do have to say, if you can get your paws on these photos, any average Joe walking down the street can

^That's getting old - not the joke, but the actual interaction. I'm ready to graduate to Poppy's equinox-fueled bubble butt

With this REI opening will the other one up the Pike close?

and is the Porsche/Audi up the street converting to only Audi?

Great shots. Love the perspective. Thanks!

@801 not sure because I believe Federal owns the center with the other REI as well

Anonymous said...

The Pike & Rose REI will supplant, not supplement, the one opposite Montrose Crossing. Federal owns Montrose Crossing but not the shops on the west side of Rockville Pike.

What 8:52 said. REI is moving. Federal Realty owns the big box community centers not the strip malls

Nice photos! It's amazing that they're doing so much at the same time. One of the biggest advantages to being a REIT--access to capital. JBG should take note. Phase II of their much smaller property at North Bethesda Market is about 6 years overdue.

You know Robert didn't take these cause there aren't any stupid looking filters on them!

Wrol said...

Is anything planned to take REI's previous spot?

Robert is opening up a store in a part of the REI space to exhibit his favorite products from his youtube channel and sell twinkies! Stay tuned!

Poppy said...

That REI looks like it is going to be very progressive with all those solar panels. I smell a big hiking clothes shopping spree coming on!

9:14 Thank you for your brilliant portrayal of a self centered asshole

Robert, I have to ask, did you obtain permission and the rights to use those photos from Clark Construction? Otherwise I believe that's plagiarism/theft?

Great exclusive look at Pike & Rose from above!

@ 9:16 AM sure is clingy. He can't even wait two minutes to respond to Poppy.

7:01 AM - When the Bois du Ouest is under construction, Poppy will host hang-glides and hot-air balloon rides over the site. It will be awesome!

@ 10:13 AM - How do you say, "if this balloon basket's a-rockin', then don't come a-knockin'", in French?

Poppy - I smell a big meaty sausage coming for you soon! I'll shape it up to be as gourmet as you'd like!

Anonymous said...

Poppy, I assume you'll be looking mostly at the Patagonia line of clothing for your hiking adventures? They're really quite the progressive company if you take the time to read about them.

What objective reader truly says something like that?

I am really looking forward to it too.

I still want to know if Robert acquired those photographs legally and ethically! He clearly didn't take them, but posted them on his blog

Anonymous said...

12:38 PM There is a photo credit. Did you see it?
I've never seen so many comments about something as mundane as a photo credit which is right in front of you.

Dyer sure has been sleepin all day! Birdbrain can't come up with an intelligent response.

Anonymous said...

@12:55 Photo credits don't necessarily mean the images were used legally. If I were to play a song in my band in public, say "Welcome to the Jungle" and just credit Guns n' Roses, that doesn't make it legal, I would still owe them a royalty fee. Birdbrain!

2:12 PM No offense, but you're not a journo. You don't know what you're talking about.
Leave photo credits to the experts, like Dyer. He's been reporting for awhile here.

"the experts, like Dyer."

Writing a term paper in school doesn't qualify you to comment on how to write news articles.

2:47, Can you clarify how Dyer is an expert?

Obvious trolls are obvious.

How is Dyer an expert? Read his masthead.

That's making fun of him, right?

Robert Dyer is a well established journalist. He's been covering MoCo longer than any other active writer that I'm aware of.

Being a life long resident, he can put the news into better context than a freelancer who lives elsewhere.

What freelancer lives elsewhere?

Anonymous said...

That's how little readers trust Dyer

Anonymous said...

"Freelancer" seems to describe Dyer better.

And I don't see how Mom's basement gives him "the ability to put news into better context". Journalism by birthright?

Anonymous said...

Haha..you can't argue that the traditional media outlets in MoCo don't heavily use freelancers and interns to write articles.

Nothing wrong with that, but quality is below a well established journalist like Dyer. They simply don't know the landscape, issues and major players in the county like Dyer does.

From today's Washington Post: Many of those office towers surrounding Washington are sitting empty

"Suburban locales are facing record-high vacancies as employers curb their appetite for space and shift their attention to more urban locales, but downtown also has a glut of available space."

And the article starts with Tysons Corner.

Well, Dyer hasn't got his share of attaboys from Councilmembers.
That's a good thing.

Hey Dyer, you fucking nazi, don't erase my comments. This is America, damnit.
