Chase Bank to Take Over Meixin Supermarket Site in Rockville
The City of Rockville has moved closer to approving a new Chase Bank with a drive-thru at the site previously occupied by Meixin Supermarket.
Meixin Supermarket was a popular Asian market in the area, but it closed about two years ago; the site, located at 460 Hungerford Dr, Rockville, MD 20850, has been vacant ever since.
In August of 2019, Bohler Engineering initially submitted the site plan and pre-application for the proposed Chase Bank at the Meixin site. Planning and development are gradual processes, and last week, Rockville’s Planning Department formally accepted the site plan for the bank, deeming it complete.
The City of Rockville’s Development Review Committee is set to meet in December to continue to formalize the development approval, but it looks like Rockville residents will have one more option for their banking needs in the not-too-distant future.
And the battle of the banks continues in Rockville. Within eyesight and walking distance of this future location are ten existing institutions. Out of curiosity it would be interesting to see why this bank did not takeover the 401 N. Washington St site, previously occupied by several banks in the past, the last being Provident Bank. The infrastructure for a drive-thru is still in place.
