Bethesda Condos That Vanished
If you had been to the Condominium grand opening – this fully catered, sample model extravaganza with spotlights illuminated the close-in Bethesda skyline, simulated 3D simulations of the finished product — you would’ve thought you were at a Hollywood movie premier. Soon after we realized we had seen the premier of “Water World”.
Land purchased at “exuberant price” + Too Big To Fail = scary 🙂
And though I’m
never one to declare that I “knew it” – I wanted to share in past Halloween themed posts. One of my 2009 pieces titled Haunted Houses of Maryland & The Trillium Bethesda may have included my skepticism below.
I’ve seen advertisements in The Post, The Washingtonian, The Bethesda Magazine to name just a few — I’ve witnessed the bulldozers level the Old Clarion hotel to prepare for this 173 unit edifice of opulence. I’ve even seen a model unit set fabricated in The Old Clarion for an electric opening night. But as time has passes, I start to wonder whether the ghosts of “Economy’s crash” created these illusions in my mind.
In all seriousness, I kindly ask construction to commence because in my humble opinion, The Trillium should be an extraordinary addition to close-in Bethesda development…
The Scariest Proposed Bethesda Condo development Plan?
Any guesses?…one hint for you. Location, Location, The absolute Worst Possible location for this “Brand”…
In the spirit of Halloween, I’ll leave this one a mystery, though I invite you to guess. I’ll follow up in the next week.
Until then, more than anything, I wish you and yours a safe Halloween…
