Demolition operations begin at Donohoe's Rugby Ave. mixed-use project (Photos)

The expected wall between the existing Gallery Bethesda luxury apartment tower and Phase 2 of the project hasn't been constructed yet, and no building has actually been smashed yet. But fencing, signage and equipment are moving into place at the future site of the 17-story residential tower where the old Miller and Long headquarters currently stands.
This is one of the few construction sites downtown to actually have the required sidewalk closure sign in place with reopening date (2018).

I can't wait until they build nice buildings like the Gallery along River Road. Shithole City, USA will become the Champs Elysees!

They only have the sidewalk sign posted because the county came out to tell them to take the barricade out of the middle of the road. The workers thought that they could take half of the lane. Notice the white spray paint the county put down. Good job MoCo because it was like playing chicken for a while the first day.

What will you all do when Dyer turns off comments?
It's inevitable.
You won't be able to post here. No commenting.
What will you do then?

@ 10:25 AM - What will YOU do when you have no comments to respond to?

No biggie. Sometimes I don't bother reading the comments. Too much vitriol, not enough dialogue.

Still plenty of anger from Dyer's "competitors".

Ok, if Dyer isn't visiting his Austrian cousins, then where is he? Is he recovering from a bender after Trump's performance in the debate last night?

1:29 can't possibly believe every negative comment is a writer for BM?

Or is it a PR person for Equity One?

Or is it a county council member representative?

Can't keep track here...

When is this project expected to be completed? The County has given sidewalk closure permits that extend beyond the expected completion dates for the projects in several instances. It is understandable for construction schedules to slip, but it's also not unreasonable to expect a sidewalk to reopen before completion, once work on the exterior is complete.

@ 5:17 PM - Do you understand the concepts of sentences and punctuation?

4:51 seems to confuse laughter and anger.

And yet still cannot explain the "lone troll" theory. :)

@ 5:17 PM - Orlando wasn't "bombed". Trump voters are such clowns.

5:17 clearly has the IQ of the typical Trump voter. The words Hillary used in the debate were probably too big for him to comprehend.
