Shop Germantown – Seneca Meadows

The fairly new neighborhood shopping area of The Shops at Seneca Meadows in Germantown is booming! Located at Seneca Meadows Parkway and Observation Drive just off Father Hurley Boulevard, the 1 million square foot area of The Shops at Seneca Meadows is a mixed used center, incorporating retail, restaurants and office space. It is larger than the nearby 800,000 square foot Milestone development.

Wegmans, the only one in Montgomery County, was one of the first shops to sign on, anchoring the project, with 200,000 square feet of space. There are three other buildings, which includes restaurants Café Rio, La Tagliatella, Famous Dave’s, Smashburger and Panera Bread. A few of the stores offer beauty services such as Bubbles Hair Salon and a nail salon. Other retail shops include a mattress store, flooring, spirits and frozen yogurt. The Little Gym, Bank of America, an optician and a dry cleaner are some of the other businesses located in the center. The office space will be located on the second floor of one of the buildings. The Shops at Seneca Meadows was set up for both in-line space and pad sites.

During this later phase of the development, Seneca Meadows Parkway and other streets will be designed as an urban, walkable destination.

Access into The Shops at Seneca Meadows are located at Observation Drive and Seneca Meadows Parkway, which can be accessed from both Rt. 118 and Father Hurley Blvd.

As a product of suburbia, one of my criteria for purchasing a home has always been close proximity to convenient shopping. Moving to Montgomery County and living in the Milestone community in Germantown has been amazing in that respect due to having the wonderful Neelsville Shopping Center just across the street. Neelsville is hailed as one of the country’s largest outdoor plazas. It has 10 separate buildings which house restaurants, grocery stores, electronics stores, mass retail stores, and various specialty stores. There is almost nothing we need that we can’t get from Neelsville in Germantown.

Years ago, there was an unprecedented snow storm which left roads unplowed for six days. The snow hit us unexpectedly and hit us hard and fast. How wonderful that my husband could walk across the street to purchase some extra shovels and salt so we could clear our driveway?! Not to mention the milk and cereal and various other home needs to tide us over until the plows came through. Just try to find me a 40 acre plot in Kansas where you can do that!

Of course, variety is the spice of any community shopping mecca and Neelsville has tons of variety. I’ve definitely been known to start in the section that Target anchors for groceries (did I mention our Target is being remodeled into a Super Target with groceries this year?) and household goods, mosey into TJ Maxx for a gift, stop at Staples for ink cartridges, haunt the Halloween seasonal store for a couple plastic shrunken heads and then pop over to Michael’s for decorative baskets — and then haul it all back to my car at Target. Who knew that shopping at Milestone’s Neelsville could double as a weight-lifting work-out?

There are so many different businesses (which have stayed consistent for many years, by the way) that I couldn’t possibly name them all in this blog. But I will mention that there’s a huge advantage to living in the Milestone community where you can leave your house when a commercial break starts, run to pick up and pay for your curbside dining, and be back in your favorite easy chair before the next segment of the show begins. Now that’s service!
