Washington Property Company’s Solaire Bethesda Delivers
Bethesda, MD-based Washington Property Company has completed construction of its latest and most upscale urban living destination, Solaire Bethesda, with 139 luxury rental apartments atop street-level retail space that will feature a True Food Kitchen restaurant scheduled to open in early 2017.
Strategically located at the corner of Wisconsin and Woodmont Avenues in the heart of one of the Washington area’s most sought-after neighborhoods, Solaire Bethesda is just 800 feet from the planned southern entrance to the Bethesda Metro station and Purple Line light rail station. In addition, WPC’s newest transit-oriented mixed-use development is just steps away from nearly 200 restaurants, 20 art galleries, two live theaters, parks, multiple fitness centers, the Capital Crescent Trail, and some of the best shopping in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Just a few of neighborhood’s trendy boutiques include Icebreaker, Kate Spade, Calypso St. Barth, Kit and Ace, Bonobos, Blue Mercury, Lucy, Luna, and Kendra Scott, along with community anchors Barnes and Noble and The Apple Store. Dining draws include Kapnos Kouzina, PassionFish, Silver, Mon Ami Gabi, Raku, Paul, Redwood, Jaleo, Mussel Bar & Grille, Vino Volo, American Tap Room, and many more.
Solaire Bethesda’s spacious, refined apartments range from 606 square foot studios to three-bedroom units that offer over 1,400 SF of living space. Apartment homes feature soaring ceilings with dramatic large windows, stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops, spa-like bathrooms with crafted wood vanity cabinets, and plank flooring. Residents will enjoy a 24-hour front desk, resort-inspired outdoor terrace overlooking Bethesda, a pet spa, available onsite storage, modern fitness studio, and a fifth-floor resident lounge with entertainment bar, gaming area, and lounge seating.
Riding Metro’s Red Line, Solaire Bethesda residents will be just 15 minutes from downtown Washington and Union Station, with easy access to the entire Washington metropolitan region as well as the Northeast Corridor via Amtrak. The Purple Line will provide quick east-west connections to Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, the University of Maryland-College Park, New Carrollton, and other destinations.
“Solaire Bethesda sets a new standard for modern urban living in Bethesda,” said Daryl South, Senior Vice President, WPC. “Our goal is to provide residents with not only an incredible apartment home in a premier location, but also with service and convenience that will make our residents’ lives a little bit less hectic so they can enjoy living in downtown Bethesda.”
Concierge services available to Solaire Bethesda residents include housekeeping and personal trainer referrals, spa and salon appointments, restaurant information and reservations, pet walking, package acceptance, valet dry cleaning, and even discounts with local retailers. Residents also enjoy up-to-the-minute transit information, complimentary coffee and tea, and monthly resident events.

Solaire Bethesda is WPC’s third Solaire-branded luxury apartment community, following the 2012 opening of Solaire Silver Spring and the early 2014 opening of Solaire Wheaton. These distinct properties, totaling nearly 700 units, combine the finest amenities and unit finishes with close proximity to Metrorail’s Red Line. The Wheaton and Silver Spring developments provide the ultimate in convenient urban Metro-accessible living at rental rates substantially below those in Washington, DC.
In Silver Spring, WPC and Montgomery County are leading the Ripley District’s transformation from former light industrial use to a vibrant transit-oriented neighborhood with an exciting new mix of dining, shopping, housing, employment, and entertainment options. The Ripley District, which is adjacent to the Silver Spring Metro and multi-modal transit station, will eventually be home to up to 3,000 people with over two million square feet of mixed-use development.
