Located at the heart of the Bethesda Central Business District and within walking distance of the Bethesda Metro Station, this urban infill site is regarded as a key component to the redevelopment of downtown Bethesda. The project included development of a 150,000 sf (13,935 sqm) office building surrounded by a series of public spaces. The design expands the size, accessibility, and experiential diversity of these spaces. With the exception of streetscapes, all landscape improvements were developed over structure including paved plaza areas, shady bosques, rich gardenesque plantings, public seating, lighting, a performance stage, and usable lawn areas.
