White Flint redevelopment

Bethesda Magazine reported yesterday that White Flint Mall’s owners released new conceptual drawings for the mall’s redevelopment during their U.S. District Court trial versus Lord & Taylor.  And yes, we very much like what we saw in those drawings.’

The Bethesda Magazine article stated:

The exhibit also shows detailed square footage for retail slots surrounding Lord & Taylor’s store as well as what a Rockville Pike Promenade, retail plaza and the central piazza could look like.

Charts attached to the site plans show 533 residential units and 589,000 square feet of retail development as part of the first construction phase. Alan Gottlieb, Lerner’s chief operating officer, testified during the trial on Aug. 5 that phase one could be built in about three-and-a-half years, according to a transcript of his remarks.

The residential units would range from one- to three-bedrooms and could include “very small commuter units” called micro-units…

While of course this drawing is subject to change, it is a lovely vision of what the White Flint mall may become.
