The shopping center with TJ Maxx and several other stores are up for sale but not the Giant and Home Depot, which are owned privately. The Washington Business journal is reporting the space as a great opportunity to develop this area for mixed use (see WBJ article here)
The Brentwood Shopping Center, developed by the same developer proposing the Walmart on New York Ave, is an example of poor design. The design of the shopping center failed in areas of access and using the propoerty to its full, mixed use ability especially being so close to a metro stop. Hopefully a new owner can take a clue from the new Metro station development next door and build a mixed use development that doesn’t leave a sea of parking in the middle of the shopping center. What are your thoughts?
