Avocet Tower Update
Construction Underway for Avocet Tower
Construction is now underway for Avocet Tower in downtown Bethesda. This striking building will feature 370,000 square feet of Class A office space along with a 220 key AC Hotel by Marriott. The transit-oriented development, located directly across from the Bethesda Metro station, was made possible by a public-private partnership between Stonebridge and Montgomery County, Maryland.
Avocet Tower, designed by Pickard Chilton, includes a 10,000 square foot public plaza, a variety of tenant amenity spaces, and is topped by a 7,500-square-foot sky terrace, crowned by an elegant trellis. Designed to LEED-Platinum certification, the tower also features advanced mechanical systems as well as a dynamic glass facade covering the entire office tower. Along with improving energy efficiency, the View glass will allow for the maximum amount of natural light into the office space, boosting employee health and wellness while not blocking the amazing views. The project is expected to be complete in the summer of 2021.
