In Chevy Chase, the effort to create the DC region’s Rodeo Drive has come to an end. As retailers flee to downtown’s City Center, the Collection at Chevy Chase is rethinking its image and hoping to make it more lively with sidewalk cafes, farmers markets and a new park, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Our brokerage, Compass, has its Maryland home base in the very building at the center of this makeover.

It’s possible in the years to come that we could have more restaurant options, though perhaps fewer window shopping opportunities, when we have meetings with clients at our Maryland location.
