The Tallest Building in MoCo
Standing at 289 feet, North Bethesda Market is the tallest building in Montgomery County.
North Bethesda Market is located along Rockville Pike, about two blocks from the White Flint Metro station– It was completed in 2010 and took the crown as MoCo’s tallest building from Gaithersburg’s Washingtonian Tower, which stands at 275 feet.
Per Montgomery Planning, “it’s a mixed-use, transit oriented development comprised of residential and commercial retail uses. It is envisioned as a vibrant new component of the larger, mixed-use live, work, play environment toward which Rockville Pike and the White Flint neighborhood are evolving.”
The mixed-use property includes a 24-story, 289-foot-tall residential tower and 183,000 square feet of retail spaces that house a Whole Foods Market, Seasons 52 restaurant and LA Fitness.
There have been plans for a neighboring North Bethesda Market II that include a 335 foot building, but those plans have stalled and it’s unclear when and if it will ever happen.
The tallest building in the DC area is 1812 North Moore Street in Arlington, which is 412 feet tall.
