Last week, the MCPB approved plans for a new mixed-use complex at 8787 Georgia Avenue (map) that will replace the current Planning Board headquarters.
Two towers, one with 6 stories and the other up to 90 feet tall, will deliver up to 413,821 square feet of residential units. Some of the housing units along Spring Street will be two- and three-story townhouse-style dwellings. The two will be connected with a two-level underground garage and up to 50,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
The total number of residential units has not yet been determined. Of the housing, 12.5 percent will be set aside for MPDUs. Construction likely won’t begin until after the new Planing Board headquarters in Wheaton is completed in 2019.
