Kentlands Market Square
After watching businesses come and go in recent years, Gaithersburg residents are welcoming an influx of new establishments and a fresh look at Kentlands Market Square. Synthetic stucco facades have been replaced by a mix of stone, wood, steel and brick to reflect an eclectic, modern version of small-town America. In the 250,000-square-foot walkable development, there are strings of overhead lights and updated dining areas with outdoor seating. Cinépolis, the new luxury cinema, features reclining leather seats, waiter service, and a gourmet menu with craft beer and specialty cocktails. Among the eateries popping up: Cinco de Mayo Mexican Restaurant and Bar, Dog Haus, MOD Pizza, Burtons Grill & Bar, and Berries & Bowls, a superfood cafe. Other additions include Foundry Fitness and Goldfish Swim School. The $23.1 million renovation will continue through most of 2020, with completion targeted for the fall.
