Developer ready to start Brightview Bethesda project downtown

Developer Shelter Group is right on schedule for the groundbreaking of its Brightview Bethesda assisted-living apartment project, which will be located at 4907 Rugby Avenue in the Woodmont Triangle. They have requested sheeting and shoring permits, which are related to excavation.

Shelter VP of Development Andrew Teeters had said the company expected to break ground in the first half of 2017. Of course, first the site will have to be cleared of the Dansez! Dansez! dance studio and the "pink house."

The building will be for assisted living and memory care residents, with a secure second floor for dementia patients. Floors 3-7 will be assisted living divided into studios, and 1-and-2-bedroom apartment units. Units will have kitchenettes, but 3 meals a day will be served in the building. Activity rooms are also planned for patients.

On the ground floor, Shelter plans to either have traditional retail tenants, or an art studio or physical therapy center. Market demand will likely determine the final decision.

Can't wait to see what kind of ground floor retail blows out here in under a year. Maybe Soup Up! will be ready to relaunch

This is useful information and a well-sourced story that doesn't veer into unfounded speculation.

Perhaps dyer can move out of his mom's basement into the second floor of this building now?

It is unfortunate that no investigative reporter actually goes behind the scene of this building construction and ask the residents living in Battery Gardens, 15 feet behind this future construction, think of the project... This Senior assistant living is just across another one on Battery Lane. Is Bethesda trying to attract Seniors from Florida?
