County Council Approves Purple Line Station Amendment
This morning the County Council unanimously approved theBethesda Purple Line station minor master planamendment, which includes new zoning and a Capital Crescent Trail tunnel design for a preferred Bethesda Purple Line station; i.e., under the Apex Building at 7272 Wisconsin Avenue. Before that can happen, the owner of the building and the county have to negotiate a financial deal so that the building can be razed and the Purple Line station built underneath it.
