Construction Begins at New Rockville Burlington Location

From the MoCo Show:

Back in January we let you know that Burlington wold be taking over the old Barnes & Noble Location in Montrose Crossing. After over half a year, construction has started on the discount clothing retailer located at 12055 Rockville Pike.

Barnes & Noble moved to Congressional Plaza this past August.

Things are just getting started, so there’s not much progress, but a picture can be seen below.

Burlington currently has two other locations in Montgomery County, Gaithersburg (600 N Frederick Ave) and Silver Spring (8661 Colesville Rd.). The retailer used to be known as Burlington Coat Factory.

Analyzing the future of mixed-use development in Montgomery County

Montgomery County has allowed mixed-use development in buildings around activity centers for many years with the goal of creating interactive streets, providing meaningful public spaces, and creating communities where people can live, work, shop, and play within a given neighborhood. Numerous studies show that mixed-use districts generate higher real estate value, reduced vehicle miles traveled, and higher transit ridership.

new study by Montgomery Planning’s Research and Strategic Projects (RSP) Division has found that mixed-use development projects are likely to become even more common than single-use projects both locally and nationally. Considering there is only about 15 percent of “unconstrained” land available for development or re-development in the county, mixed-use properties are needed to support our future economic and population growth. Learn more through an interview with the project manager of the Montgomery County Mixed-use Development Study, Research Planner Nicholas Holdzkom, in the latest Third Place blog post.
