Bethesda Condos That Vanished or Frightened

Bethesda Condos That Vanished

The Trillium, Bethesda – yes, still technically new rental apartments but not the same :-).Spooky Photo of Edgemoor

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…

Lionsgate Bethesda Inventory & Best Buy!


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 🙂
