Update on Proposed Lidl Germantown Location

by MCS Staff

Back in September we let you know that Lidl, a German international discount supermarket chain, was under contract to purchase the subject properties between Walter Johnson Road and Germantown Road and seeks to develop a 31,000 square foot Lidl Grocery Store with associated parking and open space areas. The application was accepted on December 15th of 2021 with future planning board action pending. Signs about potential development have been up since summer 2021.

The project site occupies approximately 2.8 acres of land on Walter Johnson Road between Bowman Mill Drive and Wisteria Drive, a few blocks northeast of the Germantown MARC Station. The site is a consolidation of several parcels of land. Currently, the site is partially wooded. The developed portion of the site houses an office building with a copy center on the ground floor and part of the parking lot for an adjacent credit union building.

Lidl has filed two applications. The proposed project consists of a 32,000-square foot grocery store and associated surface parking. It will have vehicular and pedestrian access from Walter Johnson Road, as well as an internal drive connecting to Bowman Mill Drive and Wisteria Drive. Lidl will also make improvements to the site frontage along Walter Johnson Road and Wisteria Drive including new sidewalks, a plaza with seating and a mural, extensive landscaping and historic resource signage.
