Cheval Bethesda condos crane removal will require road closure Saturday (Photos)

The Cheval Bethesda ultra-luxury condo tower is really entering the home stretch. This weekend, the tower crane will be removed from the construction site. That will require Fairmont Avenue to close between Old Georgetown Road and Norfolk Avenue this Saturday, April 1, starting at 7:00 AM. In case of bad weather, the crane will be removed on Sunday instead.

A lot of windows are now in place on the building. If you've been following my reports from the beginning, you'll recall the lower floors of the building are parking decks. What's interesting is that they've made glass windows that give those levels the cosmetic appearance of also being residential like the upper floors. Some buildings will simply leave garage levels with open-air punchouts, in comparison.

Duball, LLC is the developer of the Cheval Bethesda. The 17-story tower will house 72 condo units, and 7000 SF of non-residential space. Prices will be in the ultra-luxury tier: From the $900,000s to over $2.5 million. A sales gallery is located at 7706 Woodmont Avenue.
The angular curved facade
is really the signature
architectural trademark of
this building, along with
its height as the tallest
condo structure in town

Believe it or not, these are
garage parking decks, not
residential floors

The Cheval is the newest of 3
additions to this block of
Fairmont Avenue, joining
Bainbridge Bethesda (L) and

6:49: I had the photos Sunday, but postponed it to today. Just published the story. Not exactly a high priority topic in my editorial sense, but to each his own, I guess.
