The demolition of of 4733 Bethesda Avenue is part of a major redevelopment project on that block by property owner The JBG Companies. In addition to a renovation at JBG's Artery Plaza building next door at 7200 Wisconsin Avenue, which included a new entrance and demolition of an arch at the future World of Beer restaurant, a two-story retail/restaurant building with rooftop dining feature will be part of the 14-story 4747 Bethesda Avenue office tower. Construction of that smaller building is nearing completion now.

The new office building will have 280,000 SF of office space, and 7000 SF of retail. Shalom Baranes Associates is the architecture firm. Given that Shalom Baranes is also designing the redevelopment of 7272 Wisconsin Avenue adjacent to this, there's a real opportunity for a cohesive reimagining of a major portion of this square block.
