Wentworth House Apartments, part of the mixed-use North Bethesda Center development project, is an 18-story, 312-unit rental apartment building above a two-level, 63,000 square feet Harris Teeter grocery store and cafe. Wentworth House represents the first phase of a multi-phase mixed-use development program that will include 2.7 million square feet of office, residential, retail and public space. Wentworth House was completed and opened to residents in 2008, offering studio to two-bedroom homes with high-end finishes and an abundance of on-site amenities.
Serving as master developer of North Bethesda Center, a 32-acre site, LCOR oversaw the design, finance, construction, leasing and management of Wentworth House, recognizing it as both a singular asset and as the initial phase of a large scale urban center.
With its proximity to the White Flint Metro station and the direct adjacency of the Harris Teeter grocery store, Wentworth House experienced a successful lease-up and established NBC as an attractive location for residential development. The highly visible success of Wentworth House supported development of a second residential tower at North Bethesda. Aurora, a 341-unit, 18-story high-rise broke ground second quarter 2012 and completed in 2014.
