BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Governor Hogan will join Carr Properties and Clark Construction Group for the formal groundbreaking at 7272 Wisconsin Avenue on August 9, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. Situated in the heart of Bethesda at the prime intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Elm Street, 7272 Wisconsin is the future home of The Wilson and The Elm, a mixed-use development project that will include office, retail and residential space. The property will sit atop Metro’s Bethesda Red Line, the future Bethesda Purple Line Light Rail Station and the Capital Crescent Trail - a first class shared-use trail, which will collectively make this location the best transportation hub in Montgomery County.
