Montgomery County planners next week will discuss a proposal to build an apartment building with up to 294 units as part of the North Bethesda Town Center development.
The plan calls for constructing the roughly 320,000-square-foot building on 1.8 acres east of the intersection of Rockville Pike and Marinelli Road, according to a staff report.
The developer, LCOR White Flint, has constructed two other apartment buildings: the 312-unit Wentworth House and the 341-unit Aurora House.
The Town Center also includes a Harris Teeter grocery store and office space for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
For its third apartment complex, LCOR White Flint is planning a building that will be five stories tall in one corner and seven stories tall in another portion.
The three complexes will stand around a shared civic green, and LCOR representatives have said they hope to hold events that will create a sense of community.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority owns the Town Center site, which is next to the White Flint Metro station. In 2001, LCOR entered into a development agreement with WMATA, according to the planning staff.
The planning board is set to vote Jan. 25 on the site plan for the development project.
