DESIGN CHANGE FOR SHOPS OF WISCONSIN MAKEOVER IN BETHESDA (PHOTOS)
Douglas Development continues the makeover of the Shops of Wisconsin mall at 6831 Wisconsin Avenue, but the redesign itself has been updated along the way. A new rendering from the DC-based development firm no longer includes the planned arch at the front of the property. The patio is simplified, as well, with less vegetation and tables. A new, glassed-in entrance with escalators is depicted to the right of the space-age elevator.
Renovations have been going on for almost 2 years at this shopping center, which is best known for its anchor, Trader Joe's.
Here is the original 2013 concept, for comparison
