Kensington Crossing Approval Recommended by Montgomery Planning Board; First Three Tenants Signed

by MCS Staff

Back in January 2021, we let you know of site plans that were being developed for Kensington Crossing, a new retail development that will be located at 10619 Connecticut Avenue (at Plyers Mill Road) in Kensington. Yesterday, Montgomery Planning staff recommended approval (with conditions) for the project.

The site plan is limited to a maximum of 11,400 square feet of retail/service establishment and restaurant uses and one drive-thru lane associated with a bank. The Property is currently contains a vacant gas and service station and surface parking area. The main building and a temporary outbuilding are currently being used for seasonal retail sales. Vehicular access to the Property is currently unfettered – with four largely uncontrolled access points along both Connecticut Avenue and Plyers Mill Road. Two of the existing vehicular access points are located in very close proximity to the signalized intersection.

Though it’ll be some time until construction begins after final approval, Kensington Crossing has already signed it’s first three tenants– M&T Bank, Buffalo Wild Wings GO, and Mezeh.

Oh boy! Three tenants that could literally open absolutely ANYwhere there is retail space available. How exciting that instead they will band together and drive out Hawkins Landscape Supply, a terrific garden center that has been serving the community at the “vacant gas and service station” since they [Hawkins] were forced from their earlier, longtime spot at Knowles and Detrick. I guess the county figures nobody needs plants or topsoil since the entire area will soon be paved over and built upon anyway.
