Demolition begins for Avocet Tower (Video + Photos)
Demolition has begun at the site of the future Avocet Tower at 7373 Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Bethesda. It includes the former 2nd District Montgomery County police station. Developer StonebridgeCarras plans a 250' Class A office tower for the site. They are one of several developers making bold bets on new trophy office space, despite Montgomery County's moribund economy. None of the new Class A buildings have so far attracted Fortune 500 or major corporate headquarters that weren't already here.
