Westwood Apartments Statement


In 1997, as part of its mission to provide affordable housing throughout Montgomery County, HOC executed a lease with an option to purchase the Westwood Tower property in Bethesda. This lease allows HOC to maintain and enhance affordable housing in this part of the County. Over the  past  several years, the Westbard community, including the Westwood Tower property, has undergone a County-sponsored master plan review process that impacts long- term development plans for the neighborhood. As part of that process, HOC considered future options for redeveloping the site.
