Solaire Bethesda construction update


Solaire apartments has gotten a lot taller since my last update on the Solaire construction.  Then it was only 3 floors, now it looks like it is the full 22 stories tall. When finished it will have 198 apartments and a meager 1,500 square feet of retail space.

There are black bricks being installed on the second and third floors

The location, on the corner of Old Georgetown Road and Commerce lane is tough to beat, just a short block from Bethesda Metro Station.  The only way it could be better would be if there were a grocery store right next door.

The bottom floors have lavender insulating panels installed, but the top floors are, as of now, just concrete.  This corner location is where La Madeleine french bakery and cafe was once located.
