Bethesda construction update: Former BlackFinn building (Photos)

The former BlackFinn nightclub building at 4901 Fairmont Avenue has been gutted and reconfigured into smaller retail spaces. One will be home to De Tapas, a new small plates restaurant concept from the owners of Bold Bite around the corner. Another has been leased to European Wax Center, a waxing salon chain.

Work has come along substantially since my last update. You can see that the new facade design contains much more glass than the original.

Design for the new retail center was done by the local architecture firm of Steven J. Karr, AIA, Inc. Sigal Construction is the contractor.
