From its inception, Wisconsin Place in Chevy Chase, Maryland was envisioned as an urbane town center, drawing discriminating people to its fashionable stores and restaurants, luxury apartments, and prestigious office address. Ideally situated on Wisconsin Avenue, this 1.1 million square-foot complex of boutiques, offices and residences is now the crown jewel in one of the region’s most affluent and discriminating neighborhoods – Chevy Chase.
Wisconsin Place was honored by the International Council of Shopping Centers in 2011 as a Silver Design and Development Award winner in its annual U.S. Design and Development Awards. The eight-acre site features a “town center” layout with a lively mix of uses, all of which are entered from the pedestrian-oriented open-air sidewalks and pedestrian ways. Wisconsin Place includes approximately 305,000 square feet of retail, including a 180,000 square-foot Bloomingdale’s flag-ship store, a 50,000 square foot full service Whole Foods Market, and about 75,000 square feet of street-front retail boutiques and restaurants.
There are 432 luxury rental apartments, approximately 290,000 square feet of office space, a 20,500 square foot community center, a four level underground parking garage, on-site Metro access, and landscaped public spaces.
The Wisconsin Place site had long been recognized as a premier development site in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The May Company, having acquired the site, recognized the opportunity it had to further enhance the value of its site and selected New England Development as the developer/owner best suited to help them creatively maximize their land value. New England Development partnered with Archstone and Boston Properties in the development of Wisconsin Place, after master planning the site and securing all regulatory entitlements. New England Development continues to hold an ownership interest in the project.
