Nighttime noise waiver requested for Apex Building demolition in Bethesda

Carr Properties has requested a nighttime noise waiver from Montgomery County, for the demoltion of the Apex Building at 7272 Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Bethesda. The demolition team will be using high-reach hydraulic pulverizers and shears between 9:00 PM and 7:00 AM on weeknights, and 9:00 PM and 9:00 AM on weekends.

Work will be done at night due to heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic along Wisconsin Avenue. Lane closures may include the center and right southbound lanes of Wisconsin (MD 355). Demolition is now scheduled to begin in late July. A premature closure of the sidewalk and right lane created a dangerous situation for pedestrians, and the public space was recently reopened again.

Can't wait for this development. Office and residential high density easily accessible to metro, Bethesda Row, Woodmont Triangle, south Bethesda. Awesome location for this. Going to put a lot of people right smack in the middle of Bethesda during office hours and evenings to spend money on the local economy.

Will Dyer take more photos of local joggers and now claim they're "running away from the scary demolition"?
