Bank with drive-thru proposed for site of shuttered Rockville supermarket

A bank branch with a drive-thru has been proposed for the former Meixin Supermarket location at 460 Hungerford Drive in Rockville. It's interesting to see another Town Center Phase II property going to a low-density, traditional automobile-oriented MD 355 use. Their application has been deemed incomplete by planning staff, however, so there may be at least a brief delay in this moving forward.

Walgreens is getting closer to opening at the former location of The Orange Ball on 355.  When Maryland and Dawson Avenues are extended in the future, Walgreens will lose about 40 surface parking spaces. At that time, the drug store will add a drive-thru pharmacy to the exterior, to address the reduction in parking spaces.

I'm not sure if that will be sufficient in practice, however, but I guess we'll just have to see how many spaces are used when it opens.

By my recollection, the neighboring Maxim Supermarket opposed the Dawson Avenue extension, for the same concerns about the loss of parking spaces for both businesses.

I am glad Walgreens is opening, though, and imagine it will be somewhat convenient for residents of The Fitz condominium nearby.
