Two major JBG projects advancing in downtown Bethesda (Photos)
Two major development projects by The JBG Companies are picking up steam in downtown Bethesda. There have been signs of action at the sites of the future 7900 Wisconsin mixed-use project, and 4747 Bethesda Avenue office-retail complex in recent days.
JBG has requested sheeting and shoring permits for 7900 Wisconsin, a 17-story, 475-unit residential building anchored by a Trader Joe's grocery store. Those permits are related to excavation for the future building. The firm had already filed for demolition permits for the existing structures on that site last month, which include an office building, retail and Autodentz.
