Plans are progressing for a new grocery store at a mall in the center of Friendship Heights.
Clarion Partners, the owner of the Chevy Chase Pavilion along Wisconsin Avenue (map), has filed modifications to its 1986 planned unit development (PUD) in order to make a grocery store feasible for the mall. The new store would occupy approximately 18,000 square feet in the former H&M space in the mall.
Clarion Partners is tight-lipped regarding the name of the grocery chain, but a few minor details were included in the documents filed with the DC Zoning Commission.
"The Applicant has worked very hard to negotiate and has successfully executed the initial term sheet with a national boutique grocery tenant which the Applicant cannot officially name at this time due to a confidentiality agreement."
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.
