Having secured rezoning approval last September from the Montgomery County Council, Hampden Lane Associates LLC has submitted its proposed plans to build a new seven-story, 60-unit condominium in the northeast quadrant of Hampden Lane and Arlington Road on the lots now occupied by five single-family homes (now used as commercial offices) at 4913-4921 Hampden Lane. Nine of these condo units will be moderately priced dwelling units (MPDUs). The Hampden Lane plan, just two blocks from the Bethesda metro, will join a number of new residential projects in the downtown Bethesda area, including the renovated Chase (377 condo units), the Bethesda Row extension (180 rentals), 7001 Arlington Road (111 condo units), and 4901 Hampden Lane (70 condo units). With this project moving forward, the county, which originally planned to build a 12-unit homeless transitional housing project on the site, will now construct this transitional housing adjacent to the future Hampden Lane condo structure.
