Strathmore Square is an arts-focused, healthy-living-centric residential community at the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro Station. With the Strathmore Music Center and Rock Creek Park at our door, this premiere address is, above all, cultural, accessible, and green.
With 2,000 units stretching across an 8-acre master-planned community, Strathmore Square incorporates a central open space filled with performances, gardens, classrooms, and more. At Strathmore, you’ll nourish mind, body, and spirit through culture, connection, and exhilarating outdoor experiences. Together with our partners at Strathmore and WMATA, Fivesquares is shaping a one-of-a-kind neighborhood in Bethesda. The first building will break ground in late 2022, designed by renowned architecture firm Deborah Berke Partners and landscape architects Mahan Rykiel.
The centerpiece of Strathmore Square will be lush, programmed open space designed by world-renowned landscape architect Hargreaves Jones. A series of outdoor rooms will dot the central 1.25-acre civic green, with space for an outdoor stage, kiosks, play areas, and garden spaces for programming, festivals, and gatherings. More than a mere venue for activities, this will be a place for connection and outdoor experiences.
With arts and learning a core part of our vision, Fivesquares is working with Strathmore to create a vibrant hub for Strathmore’s Artists in Residence, as well as incorporating intimate performances, rehearsal spaces, classrooms, and galleries throughout the space. A seamless extension of the cultural and performance arts campus, this multidimensional space will infuse the community with a unique flavor.
At the edge of Strathmore Square lies the historic Rock Creek Park National Park and Regional Park system. Designed to evoke the scenic surroundings, the development’s 1.25-acre open space is lush with native plants and mature trees, blurring the boundaries between the project and the park. The main lawn promises space for Frisbee, picnicking, or a musical performance at dusk. Plus, there’s creative stormwater conservation and management and low-impact connections to the 32 miles of running and bike trails of Rock Creek Park.
With spacious floorplans and interiors designed by renowned Deborah Berke Partners, Strathmore Square’s first building is truly a residence to top all others. Luxuriously appointed bedrooms are a must, as is abundant storage, in-unit laundry, and hall closets. And the perks don’t stop within each unit. Amenities range from a state-of-the-art fitness center to enhanced air filtering throughout to dark sky street lighting for reduced light pollution. Experience regular exercise programming at the open space, plus wellness-centric retail offerings and access to a vast array of nearby shopping and dining.
