North Bethesda Market
With an objective of bringing luxury residential options and new retail to the area, North Bethesda Market is a 1.2 million square-foot mixed-use project. It features 399 apartments spread between two towers and a 63,000 square-foot Whole Foods. Clark completed the complex, along with extensive sitework, sparking life into the North Bethesda community.
North Bethesda Market is comprised three buildings. The 24-story tower, known as Market East, includes 189 apartments and is the highest tower constructed in Montgomery County. Market West is a midrise building with 210 apartments spread over four floors. On Market West’s ground level is a two-story, 63,000 square-foot Whole Foods. Clark also built a 36,000 square=foot structural steel building for future retail. At the intersection of the three buildings, Clark constructed a plaza area, as well as a series of roads to connect them.
On-site residential amenities were essential to create the envisioned high-end living environment. The plaza area features a fountain, original James Sanborn sculpture, patio chairs, park benches, and trees. two swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a rooftop courtyard with an outdoor living room and grill pits, and a resident lounge and game room.
The massive project required extensive concrete work. North Bethesda Market includes more than 63,000 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete. Clark Concrete placed 8,626 cubic yards over a five-week span at its busiest point in construction.
