The estate filed documents on April 21 that allow Equity Residential to represent them, and to proceed with redevelopment of the property. They've also received a preliminary review from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, regarding the environmental conditions of the property, including cataloging trees on site. It is listed as being in the Little Falls watershed.
The Planning Board draft of the Bethesda Downtown Plan suggests a height limit of 150' for the property, but that could change in the final plan when it is passed by the Montgomery County Council. Currently, the property is improved with the single-family home, and a garage. It is surrounded by other high-rises, including The Metropolitan, The Christopher, and The Chase.
