Montgomery County government; the project architect, Shalom Baranes

the project, who will be moving their headquarters from Washington, D.C.
to Bethesda, MD. "We're excited Fox 5 News could join us for this
momentous event, and we are thrilled to have them as a customer. Their
relocation to our project is a great show of support for our project and
for the dynamic Bethesda market," said Oliver Carr, III, CEO of Carr

Carr has branded the office portion of the project as "The Wilson" and
the residential portion as "The Elm". The Wilson and The Elm will sit
atop the future Bethesda Purple Line Station, a new entrance to Metro's
Red Line station, and a newly constructed tunnel for the Capital
Crescent Trail. These transportation amenities will collectively make
this location the best transportation hub in Montgomery County. Once
completed, The Wilson and The Elm will be one of the most prominent
developments in Montgomery County, Maryland. It contemplates an
impressive total density of approximately 937,000 SF, including
approximately 360,000 SF office building with ground floor retail, two
residential towers housing 456 units, and a shared above and below-grade
