Shake Shack Kentlands has ABS Hearing on January 6, 2022

by MCS Staff

Construction at the upcoming Shake Shack (150 Kentlands Square Place) in the Kentlands neighborhood has not begun just yet, but the burger chain will have its Alcohol Beverage Services (ABS) hearing, which would give them a license to sell beer and wine on the premises, at 9:30am on January 6th.

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. Plans were approved this past summer.


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.

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.

The upcoming Montgomery Mall location recently announced an opening date.
