Two large construction cranes will soon loom over Woodmont Triangle, another sign of the coming wave of apartment and condo development in Bethesda’s longtime restaurant and retail core.
Donohoe Construction, developer of the Gallery of Bethesda project at Auburn and Rugby Avenues, has installed the base for a 200-foot construction crane that will be built in the next few weeks.
The crane will be up for about a year, according to a Donohoe Construction official at last week’s meeting of the Woodmont Triangle Action Group.
The Gallery of Bethesda will include two towers, one that is 17 floors and one that is 16 floors, with 235 units and 221 units, respectively, according to a development map produced by the Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center.
Construction crews at Bainbridge developer’s 17-story, 200-unit project on Fairmont Avenue are also expected to have a crane in operation soon.
