The Lauren Bethesda
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…
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…
Amendment to this post – September, 9, 2014 – you’re currently viewing both “The Darcy” and Lionsgate condos units.
Context: This post Focussed on two fabulous buys in the higher end Downtown Bethesda scene. One – a three bedroom on the largest tier at The Adagio — and the second I mention in this post. Both “bargains”* in the very lows $1Millions, both over 2000 sq ft., it’d be hard to replicate those Best of Buys! That said, see The Lionsgate unit currently on at a shade over $1.5 million. Great exposures in an often “location challenged” building. **perhaps great buys relative to Bethesda price per square foot is a better way to articulate 🙂
