Redevelopment of Bethesda’s Westwood Shopping Center could begin later this year after the project secured Planning Board approval Thursday, capping three years of heated debate and opposition.
Regency Centers officially filed its Site Plan No. 820180190 and Preliminary Plan No. 12070170 with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission in May. Following feedback from the community, Commission Staff and the Commission’s Development Review Committee, Regency Centers submitted its revised plans early last month.
The Commission anticipates a tentative Planning Board hearing on the applications in the fall of 2018.
Proposal calls for mixed-use buildings, more than 500 new homes in the Westbard neighborhood.
