Potomac Foods Group has leased the part of the parking lot from the property owner, Safeway, at 15411 New Hampshire Ave to build a new Burger King restaurant (with drive-thru). Demolition of the previous bank building occurred a couple months back and below grade construction started weeks ago. The construction of the upcoming Burger King is expected to take a few months and is likely to open in the first half of 2023.
The process included Safeway applying for a reduction in the number of parking spaces required for the Safeway store. A parking waiver is needed because removing the parking spaces necessary to build the new Burger King will reduce the number of parking spaces for Safeway below the minimum required by the Zoning Ordinance. Safeway filed the amendment requesting to remove the parking easement on the Burger King site and was eventually approved after the initial application was filed a couple years back.
Burger King will be accessible from an internal drive aisle on the Safeway Property, which connects to Briggs Chaney Road and New Hampshire; or from Cloverly Street. Burger King is consolidating access to Cloverly Street by eliminating the two curb cuts on Cloverly Street closest to MD650. Eighteen parking spaces will be provided on-site, broken into two rows, perpendicular to the internal drive aisles. Burger King will also offer 10,540 square feet of Amenity Open Space made up of landscaped/lawn area, sidewalks and an outdoor patio with stamped concrete, seating, bike racks, pedestrian scale lighting, and street trees that will provide shade. The seating area is situated along Cloverly Street next to the front entrance, between the building and sidewalk.
