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a series of outdated single family homes used for commercial purposes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.

Construction Updates

Latest Update 8/12/2020

Pouring Concrete on Roof Level 

We have substantially completed the concrete structure with minor curb and parapets on the roof left to be completed. You will see concrete truck traffic diminish significantly.



We have installed perimeter framing up to the 5th floor. Installation of the exterior sheathing and vapor barrier is up to the 4th Floor on the East elevation and South half of Arlington Road.  We’ve also started installing sheathing and vapor barriers on the Edgemoor Lane elevation ground floor level.  Once the vapor barrier is installed, we begin installing windows. 


Interior Framing has started on the ground floor level.


Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Rough-ins

Mechanical rough-ins are on the first floor.  


Plumbing & Sprinkler rough-ins have been installed through the fourth floor.



Brickwork has started on the East Elevation following window installation.


Permanent Power

The installation of the PEPCO vaults is complete.   We received Temporary Power Final (TPF), which releases PEPCO to install their cables and set the transformers in the vaults.


Utility Undergrounding

At Edgemoor Lane and Arlington Road:

Overhead relocations are complete with the exception of Comcast.   They are scheduled to complete the undergrounding of their lines by the end of this month.


At Moorland Lane and Arlington Road:

Pepco overhead relocation is complete.  Duct bank installation for the low voltage providers is underway.


Reminder about Arlington Road and Access to The Christopher Apartments:

Christopher residents are able to access their garage, however access to the circle will vary, based on the work being done. 


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 

We are continually reviewing our safety precautions on the worksite and making adjustments as needed.  Our on-site safety team-members place wristbands on each person entering the site after confirming they are temperature free with a noncontact thermometer.  The wristbands change color each day. We also maintain a daily log of each employee screened.   


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. 

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

Stay tuned for more updates over the next few weeks as we move forward with the construction process.
