Two developers broke ground recently on apartment buildings in Bethesda and Potomac.
In the Woodmont Triangle area in Bethesda, the 7770 Norfolk building is expected to include 244 units and 6,000 square feet of retail space, according to a news release from JBG. The project is a joint venture of The JBG Cos., ROSS Development & Investment, and the CIM Group.
The 17-story building is expected to be finished in 2015, the release said. Developers are hoping to put a restaurant or cafe on the ground floor, with apartments above and a rooftop pool.
The companies broke ground on the building Thursday.
Near Interstate 270 in Potomac, The Foulger-Pratt Cos. recently began building the Park Potomac Apartments, according to a news release from the company on Wednesday.
The new building is expected to have 297 units of luxury apartments, according to the release. Foulger-Pratt hopes they will attract “working professionals, more mature singles and couples, and empty nesters.”
The Park Potomac Apartments also are expected to have retail space on the ground floor and a swimming pool.
The apartments are part of the Park Potomac planned community, which also includes condos, townhomes, a Harris Teeter grocery store and a Founding Farmers restaurant. Future plans for expanding the community include a luxury hotel, office space and more retail, according to the news release.
