Just a quick update on the "Monty" project, a new mixed use 17 story apartment building with up to 200 units and 7,700 square feet of ground-floor retail south of Woodmont Avenue facing both Fairmont Ave and St. Elmo Ave. The planning board hasn't had it on the agenda for the past year but it looks like things are slowly progressing. Based on a comment on another post, I walked by there and both PrepMatters and Dansez! Dansez! have moved. I think they were the last occupants of the buildings that are scheduled to be torn down.
According to PrepMatters: While our new office is under construction, we will be holding all summer sessions in a temporary space located at 8120 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 850, Bethesda.
Dansez! Dansez! move on June 16th to 4909 Fairmont Ave, Bethesda, MD.
Update 7/1: What a difference a couple of days makes. DCMud reports that the sale of 4918 St. Elmo Avenue (pictured) to Bainbridge Companies is now complete. Demolition and excavation are supposed to begin this fall and the entire project be done sometime in October 2012.
