Developer wants input on Bethesda project

June 9, 2018 by  

Brookfield Property Partners is getting set to redevelop Bethesda Metro Center Plaza, and wants to hear from the community about what residents feel should happen in one of the city’s most important spaces.

In order to get feedback, it has set up an online portal where people can make comments. Although it went live only recently, over 1,900 comments have already been received.

Among the items on residents’ wish lists are comfortable seating, green space, a cafe, and space for winter ice skating and summer water sports. Other suggestions include a space where children can play and musicians can perform, while still others would like to see public art, more shady spaces, and seasonal markets.

Brookfield’s plans for the site include a high-rise comprising 500,000 square feet, to be built on the plaza, as well as revitalizing an underutilized open space. The developer says the center is not as welcoming as it could be due to physical barriers, inconsistent changes in grade, and poorly designed landscaping.

Brookfield’s plans also include positioning a gallery area, promenade, plaza, and central lawn around the new building, and redoing the bays used by Metro buses.

Since projects like this are important to many people, and since not everyone has regular access to a computer, the developer might consider working with a flyer printing company to create a mailer for area residents, to make sure they know about the opportunity to provide feedback.
