INTRODUCING MAIZON BETHESDA.
ZOM Living is transforming the 7500 block of Arlington Road in Bethesda from
a series of outdated single family homes used for commercial purposes
to a high-quality, multi-family residential community.
Designed with the Community in Mind
We are building a beautifully designed multi-family community that will create a pleasant transition from the taller buildings on Wisconsin and Woodmont Avenues to the residential community in Edgemoor. Our design includes many features that make the pedestrian experience safer and more enjoyable.

Latest Update 5/21/2020
“Elevated Levels” vs. “Floors”
We have been writing about elevated levels in our updates, which referred to the location of the work as it related to the topography of the site. Now that our work has moved above ground level, we’ll talk about the actual floors under construction.
Pouring Concrete for Fifth and Sixth Floors
Concrete pouring has been progressing steadily. We have finished pouring for the fifth floor and are working to complete the sixth.
Reminder: During this aboveground concrete pour phase, you’ll see concrete trucks traveling in and out of the property every two or three days. The trucks will continue to access the site between 7 AM and 7 PM.
Roughing in Mechanical and Electrical
We finished roughing in mechanical and electrical on the two garage levels and the first floor. Work is underway on the second floor.
We are also installing the sprinkler standpipe, which travels vertically to supply water for the sprinkler system on all floors. We finished installing the standpipe up to the fourth floor so far. Sprinkler installation will occur separately.
Pepco Vault Work Continues on Moorland Lane
Electrical duct bank installation is still underway. As a reminder, while this work takes place, The Christopher’s traffic circle won’t be accessible but the entrance will remain open.
As part of Pepco undergrounding, we are installing a second Pepco duct bank at Moorland Lane and Arlington Road. This involves partial lane closures on Arlington Road each day while the work is taking place. Weather permitting, we expect to complete this work in about two months.
Once the Pepco undergrounding work is completed, we will begin work to underground telecommunications facilities, such as Verizon and Comcast. This will involve installing one more duct bank for telecom and will take about one month, once we start.
Reminder: Because traffic is lighter during the COVID-19 crisis, the County has extended partial lane closures to between 7 AM and 5 PM, provided that at least one lane in each direction remains open. When work is complete each day, the work will be plated and the closed lanes will reopen.
Worksite Safety Precautions Update
We are continually reviewing our safety precautions on the worksite and making adjustments as needed. We added an on-site safety team-member to monitor activity and take the noncontact temperature of workers before they enter the site. All workers are required to wear masks. We also installed additional hand sanitizer stations.
Signs have been posted at each gate with information on preventing the spread of the virus, and at bathrooms with hand washing recommendations. In addition to ensuring adequate supplies of hand sanitizer at the portable toilets, a hand-washing sink stocked with soap and paper towels is now on the site.
Everyone working on Maizon Bethesda is frequently reminded of the need for regular hand-washing and maintaining social distancing. People showing signs of being sick are instructed to stay home. And anyone who shows signs of being sick while on the site will be sent home.
Our Maizon Bethesda construction team continues to monitor local and national recommendations with regards to Covid-19 and will make adjustments as the situation progresses. For now, work on the site is moving forward.
Hours of Operation
Hours of operation at the construction site are 7 AM–7 PM Monday through Friday and 9 AM–3 PM in public areas. Saturday hours are from 9 AM–3 PM due to noise restrictions. We will be taking onsite deliveries from 7 AM–7 PM.
Stay tuned for more updates over the next few weeks as we move forward with the construction process.
