The Wormald Cos. will handle development of 44 “ultra-luxury” townhomes inside the Quarry Springs community on River Road in Bethesda.

Two condominium buildings with a combined 50 units already stand on the 13-acre “estate” community. The condo developer, 1788 Holdings LLC, had originally intended to build two more condo complexes but changed its plans to add new townhomes instead.

Wormald expects to begin construction on the luxury townhomes later this year, with the first units slated for completion in 2019, according to Valerie Wells, sales director for The Mayhood Co., which is handling sales for the Quarry Springs condos.

Ken Wormald, a partner in the Wormald company, wrote in an email that the townhomes will be designed with “European influences” and will include elevators and rooftop terraces.

Wormald’s involvement in the project was first reported by Montgomery Newsletter, a subscription-only publication focused on real estate news.
