Collection at Chevy Chase revamp heads to Planning Board September 8
Parking and vehicular circulation will be downplayed in favor of shared roadways, which in theory will slow drivers who will have to navigate around pedestrians and bicyclists on the same interior streets. The actual parking infrastructure, like parking ticket machines, will be relocated to the interior of the property, to get rid of the "gated entry" feel that today is the first thing that greets arriving customers. Finally, steps will be taken to better connect the Friendship Heights Metro station with the Collection.
Planners are recommending approval of the project, with some conditions.
