The most recent update on the redevelopment of the mall is that on August 16, the Gaithersburg Mayor and City Council adopted the most recent Lakeforest Mall Master Plan Amendment.  According to Gaithersburg Mayor Jud Ashman, “A lot of things have to come together for a redevelopment to happen, but what we’re doing with this Master Plan update is laying the groundwork for it”.
