This past winter we discussed the possibility of a fourth Starbucks drive-thru joining the current locations in Burtsonville, Gaithersburg, and Kensington: Starbucks Drive-Thru Rumor
Last night, the City of Gaithersburg approved a sketch plan that would allow the Kentlands Starbucks location to move and potentially add a drive-thru.
Not everyone has been on board, as many Kentlands/Lakeland’s residents feel that at a drive-thru would not fit the mold of a walkable community, but it seems as thought it’s going to happen.
If you’ve been in the area lately, you’ve probably seen the construction in the Center Point Way area.
The City of Gaithersburg has multiple pages of information regarding the updates coming to the Kentlands: Projects Page

MOD Pizza, which specializes in serving individual artisan-style pizzas and salads “superfast” since 2008, will be opening in the Kentlands.
Though only about a decade old, the Seattle based chain has over 330 locations in the United States and United Kingdom.
Their other MoCo location is located in Silver Spring at 909 Ellsworth Dr.
The Kentlands location will be located off of Center Point Way, across from Cinepolis. It is expected to open later this year, but we don’t have a more specific timeframe at the moment.
The Pizza Hut location at The Shops at Potomac Valley (12167 Darnestown Rd. in Gaithersburg) has closed temporarily due to renovations.
Reader Chase Carter was able to send us some photos of the restaurant and it looks like it may take a while before the restaurant is serving Pizza again.
There is no time table for when the renovations will be completed, but it certainly looks like a long process before this location is up and running.
On the heels of the major changes coming to the Sears location at Montgomery Mall, Grow Gaithersburg (the official office of Gaithersburg economic development) has announced that Northwood investors recently purchased the Lakeforest Sears location for $4 million.
One of the biggest issues when it comes to redevelopment of the mall, or land that the mall is on, is that the anchor stores own the land they’re on. Could this be one of many dominos to fall?
Lakeforest Mall was recently added to Gaithersburg’s enterprise zone in an effort to attract new development by providing local property and and state income tax credits to any businesses that come to the area and create jobs.
The bubble tea ...bubble... is the biggest it has been in MoCo, so it’s only right that The Kentlands get in on the action.
Bobapop offers “bubble tea reimagined” according to their website. They plan to open in mid-August in Main Street in the Kentlands (directly across from the new Yoyogi location).
