Gallery Bethesda II received a 2019 NAIOP DC l MD Chapter Award of Excellence in the Best Multifamily Project - Montgomery County category at the annual awards ceremony.

Donohoe Development delivered Gallery Bethesda II world-class residences to downtown Bethesda late 2018. The luxury high-rise apartment building is the sequel to its neighbor, Gallery Bethesda, which delivered in 2014. The two buildings share a pedestrian plaza with sculpture, lights and 12,245 square feet of neighborhood and community-focused retail that serves the entire Bethesda area.  

The project was designed by WDG Architecture to create both a generous experience for pedestrians and a residential experience second to none. From its interesting setbacks that create a variety of residential units, to its balconies that provided incredible views of Bethesda, the building is visually and experientially appealing. Donohoe Construction built the 240,000 square foot, 17-story luxury tower with 219 residential units and 3 levels of below grade parking. Building amenities includes a rooftop pool and deck with fire pits, outdoor kitchen and pizza oven, indoor sky lounge, and a sports-club style fitness center. The building's LEED Gold design additionally incorporates elements such as bike parking, FEV recharging stations, energy efficient LED lighting, and low VOC finishes.
