I guess one of those facilities is at the intersection of Georgia and Blueridge. Is there a re-development plan after it closes? Form what I can remember, there was a potential buyer for the property but the deal fell through a few months ago.

Thanks for the link Commentous! I am not sure how I missed that article, but it is great news.

I missed it because it was on the Kensington Patch. I do not think that it was featured on the Wheaton Patch. It would be great if Esther and Yaman coordinate so we can have the relevant articles featured on our Wheaton patch.

Anton--Good suggestion. I found it by searching on the Wheaton Patch website for "Ambassador" after reading your question, so I didn't realize it was not in the Wheaton Patch.

It looks like this will replace three lots and single-family homes. Here is a link to the preliminary plan, which includes a sketch of what the building will look like. The building height is restricted by the new sector plan. http://www.montgomeryplanningboard.org/agenda/2012/documents/20120216_BBandTBankKensingtonWheaton.pdf.
