Developer ready to start Brightview Bethesda project downtown
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.
