(Duball)

Downtown Bethesda is quickly becoming high-rise condo central, where developers are building upscale, expensive homes for downsizing empty-nesters and younger professionals.

Access to Bethesda’s restaurants, shops and entertainment venues as well as to the Bethesda Metro station is the prime feature drawing buyers to the area, along with the attraction of living in a new residence with concierge services and on-site amenities.

Stonehall Bethesda, a 46-unit condo to be built at 7706 Woodmont Ave., at Battery Lane, recently opened a sales center for prospective buyers. Models and the building itself are expected to open in summer 2017.

Developed by Duball, LLC, the company that developed Lionsgate in Bethesda, Stonehall Bethesda has two-bedroom units priced from the $800,000s, two-bedrooms with a den priced from $1.3 million and penthouses starting at $2.3 million. Residents can walk to Bethesda’s restaurants, services and shops, including a Harris Teeter directly across the street. Planned building amenities include a rooftop terrace, a club room for entertaining, a fitness center and concierge services.

The units will have an open floor plan, hardwood flooring, tile flooring in the bathrooms, quartz counters and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen, oversized windows, quartz counters on the bathroom vanities and walk-in closets. Some of the residences include a balcony or terrace.
