Rockville construction update: Wintergreen Plaza (Photos)

Ted's 355 Diner was gutted, and a new retail structure is being built on its frame at Wintergreen Plaza. Whether this is for one tenant, or will be divided among several, is not yet clear - although there are dividers inside suggesting the latter. The dimensions appear to be capable of holding four tenants.

In any case, the building and its rooftop turrets match those nearby in the shopping center.

Former Ted's 355 Diner demolished in Rockville (Photos)

The fate of the diner at Wintergreen Plaza on Rockville Pike is now clear. Formerly Ted's 355 Diner, the structure is now being demolished. Conflicting signs of what was pending - construction fencing and dumpster, but also a sign offering the building for lease - had many wondering what exactly the shopping center's plans were for the diner.

About the only thing left from the diner is some silver trim along the front of the gutted building.

Ted's 355 Diner closed in Rockville (Photos)

Retro yet gleaming, Ted's 355 Diner has been a popular dining destination for those seeking a modern version of yesteryear's diner experience. Alas, the nostalgia is over, as patrons found when they pulled up for a meal this weekend. "What's going on?" "Are they closed?", many asked, before heading back to their vehicles in disappointment.

Indeed, Ted's 355 Diner has closed permanently. It's currently unknown if the space will be leased to another restaurant, or replaced altogether by another structure. The diner has occupied a prominent roadside spot on Rockville Pike for many years.

Here are some photos for history's and posterity's sake:
