A new grocery store could be coming to a Friendship Heights mall. 

The owner of the Chevy Chase Pavilion along Wisconsin Avenue (map) is looking to make modifications to the original planned unit development (PUD) for the building that would make a grocery store feasible for the space. Building owner Clarion Partners told ANC 3E on Thursday that is in talks with a national grocer chain to occupy the former H&M store space in the mall.

Clarion Partners did not disclose the name of the grocery chain, but did say that the company wants confirmation that the interior changes can be made before moving forward. The new store would be the third grocer in Friendship Heights; Whole Foods Market and Amazon Fresh are located nearby. 

The retail portion of the Pavilion has largely emptied out over the last several years, and The Cheesecake Factory is the lone remaining retailer. The building is not the only mall in the neighborhood making changes. Across Wisconsin Avenue, Mazza Gallerie is being reimagined as a 7-story, 325-unit apartment project with 25,000 square feet of retail.
