MOSTLY MONOGRAMS MOVES OUT OF BETHESDA (PHOTOS)
moved to the nearby Westwood Center II on Ridgefield Road in 2013. It has now vacated that space, and moved to 4216-B Howard Avenue in Kensington.
Westwood Center II now has, among its vacancies, what are arguably two of its highest-visibility storefronts - the former Mostly Monograms, and the vacant Weight Watchers space. Given that any potential redevelopment of this property is at least two years off, I'm curious to see what kind of tenants owner Equity One can fill these spaces with in the meantime.
The average income and demographics around Westwood Center II are out-of-this-world, and you would think any retailer or restaurant would want to capitalize on that. Yet the ground-level West River Deli space remains vacant over 2 years later. Meanwhile, other long-time tenants there continue along just fine, so you can't blame the vacancies on the building itself.
