The Rae is a new 343-unit, five-story apartment building being constructed on Motor City Drive across from the Home Depot and Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland. This is the site of the former Ourisman Ford car dealership. I most recently posted about the construction of the Rae back in April and a lot of progress has been made since then.
The final shape of the building is clear now. The full height of the building is up and the outer walls are sheathed in Tyvek. No windows are in yet and the roof isn't on. This is the view from the corner of Motor City Drive and Westlake Terrace, right near Montgomery Mall.

The central core of the building is a multi-story parking garage. The concrete walls of the garage were ugly when they were exposed, but now the wood built apartment floors hid them and it looks much better.
