Renderings of Kentlands Shake Shack Location
In a virtual meeting tonight, the Gaithersburg Planning Commission will look at an amendment to the final site plan of the upcoming Shake Shack location.
Included in the site plan were renderings (shown below) of what Shake Shack will look like when it’s built as a standalone restaurant between the new Starbucks and the existing Chipotle across the parking lot from Lowe’s.
The restaurant will not have a drive-thru, but will have a carry-out pick up window and ample outdoor seating. It is expected to open by the end of 2022.
Saul Holdings Limited Partnership will be submitting a Final Site Plan Amendment for Part of the Kentlands Square Property (The Property). The property that is the subject of this Final Site Plan Application is approximately 1.8 acres of land (the “FSP Area”) within a larger existing site owned by Saul.
It totals approximately 33.8 acres across two separate parcels (known as the “Kentlands Square Property” or “Kentlands Square”), all of which are zoned MXD.
The building, totaling 2100 sq. ft of commercial use on site E, was approved on October 16, 2019. In response to interim development opportunities, this Application proposes to develop the FSP Area with one additional infill building totaling ±4,300 square feet of commercial use on Site ‘D’. Site D is primarily accessed from the eastern parking lot.
Secondary access is proposed along Kentlands Square Place. The Application proposes a new concrete sidewalk along the drive aisle on the northern portion of the project, continuing along the eastern parking lot. The proposed commercial site will replace existing lawn area, along with the addition of street tree to existing islands within the parking lot. No changes to any existing commercial buildings are proposed by this Application.
In summary, the Application contributes as an interim step towards the greater vision of the Kentlands development; is in compliance with SDP‐7712‐2017, in accord with City Code §§ 24‐160D.9.(b) and 160D.10.(b); and conforms with the applicable 1988 Master Plan.
