A developer wants to build 120 apartments and ground-floor retail at the existing site of the United Bank branch near the Bethesda Metro station.
McLean, Va.-based developer Kettler is preparing an application for a project plan at 7535 Old Georgetown Rd., the stone building at the corner of Old Georgetown and Commerce Lane that houses the bank.
The mixed-use project will be 143 feet tall.
The site is near the Bethesda Metro bus bays and in the shadow of the 7550 Old Georgetown Rd Class C office building currently under construction.
Kettler made a presentation of the plans, which includes 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail directly across the street from restaurant La Madeleine, on Tuesday at the Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center.
