Maryland Mall to Be Transformed into a Town of its Own

North Bethesda's White Flint Mall is your standard 850,000 sq. ft. mall surrounded by parking structures. The developer has announced it will be replacing the whole thing with a 5 million sq. ft. collection of apartments, offices and shops.

Reporter Alex Ruoff writes:

"It is the largest development project proposed since the approval of the White Flint Sector Plan, an outline for development that rezoned much of the area surrounding the White Flint Metrorail station to encourage more development there, according to planning documents."

Only the 2 major department store anchors will be preserved; the rest of the mall will be razed for new construction.
