Rozansky & Kay Construction will build a six-story office building at the intersection of Rockville Pike and Twinbrook Parkway in Rockville on the site of the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. building. The Pepsi-Cola building will be demolished for construction of the $27 million office building, to be known as Twinbrook Metro Plaza.
Rozansky & Kay purchased the 1.89-acre site for $1.8 million from Alberts Warehouse Showrooms Inc. Construction is scheduled for completion in the spring of 1985.
The new 173,000-square-foot building will have surface and underground parking for 623 cars.
The Twinbrook office building is located a block from the Twinbrook Metro Station and is the fifth Rozansky & Kay project planned or under way at a Metro stop.
Other Rozansky & Kay Metro-related projects include the Bethesda Metro Center, the $55 million Judiciary Center, the Twinbrook Office Center in Rockville (also near the Twinbrook Metro stop) and the proposed Tri-Rock Office Park in Rockville and Tysons Commerce Center.
