Bethesda Magazine: Westwood Shopping Center Project Expected for 2018 Review by County Planning Board

By Bethany Rodgers, Bethesda Magazine

A developer expects plans for the Westwood Shopping Center in Bethesda’s Westbard neighborhood will come before Montgomery County planning officials later this year.

Regency Centers, the developer interested in transforming the aging strip mall and large parking lot, last month turned in its new proposal for building about 410 multifamily homes, 106 townhomes and about 176,232 square feet of commercial and retail space.

The project would cover a 23-acre area including the shopping center at 5400 Westbard Ave., the former Manor Care nursing home property and the Westwood II property at 5110 Ridgefield Road.
