Forest Glen Office Building Redevelopment Set for Key Approval

The redevelopment of a Forest Glen medical office building at 9801 Georgia Ave. into a mixed-use development is set for key approval next month.

UrbanTurf reports that the 390-unit residential development will go before the county’s Development Review Committee in September.

Earlier this year, JLB Realty LLC, which appears to be affiliated with Dallas-based JLB Partners, a national developer of multi-family projects, filed sketch plans for the project, the first step in obtaining planning approval.

Plans call for a 460,000-square-foot building with a maximum height of 78 feet, and 5,000 square feet of retail. Fifteen percent of the residential portion would be devoted to moderately-priced dwelling units (MPDUs), per county requirements.

The building was designed by D.C.-based Moya Design Partners, according to UrbanTurf.

“This space is envisioned to become a public gathering space, where commuters as well as residents of the adjacent community can come to interact, run errands, and enjoy a cup of coffee,” reads the project’s Project Narrative and Justification Statement filed earlier this month. “The design for this open space creates a series of stepped terraces with each terrace having a slightly different character, although each will have full access to the surrounding streetscapes.”
