Arrowstreet developed a master plan for a 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development in the Washington, DC suburb of Bethesda. Located at the intersection of the Beltway and busy Route 270, the site includes space for a future light-rail connection to create a transit-oriented development. Low retail buildings facing Rock Spring Drive along the south side create an approachable pedestrian scale, backed by a denser center core of retail and hotel space surrounding a central dining and entertainment plaza. Large scale office and housing buildings further vary the mix of uses. Carefully planned open spaces and tree-lined roadways preserve a green-space experience throughout the entire development.
