I wasn't aware that it was even for sale, but City Place (aka "Shitty Place" aka "Silver Plaza") has been sold to developer Petrie Ross Ventures of Annapolis. I've never been to any of the places they've developed, but I imagine they have grander plans for the space than what is there now.
‘‘We are excited to become part of the dynamic revitalization of Silver Spring,” Walt Petrie, chairman, said in a statement. ‘‘We have an exciting merchandising plan to create a prime destination for shoppers as well as current and future retailers.”Maybe we'll get that Bed Bath & Beyond after all. No word yet on their photography policy.
What stores would you like to see in City Place? Off the top of my head, here's some from my wishlist:
- Crate & Barrel
- Kid Robot
- Banana Republic
- Redskins Store
- Adidas Originals
- Nintendo World (as if)
I realize that there is little to no chance of getting some of these, however...
