The Collection is a curated anthology of shops and restaurants steps from the Friendship Heights Metro located on Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland, along the Washington, D.C..[2][3][4] - Maryland border. Starting in the spring of 2016, The Collection will undergo renovations to become a vibrant new focal point in Chevy Chase. Uniting existing food and fashion destinations with a curated mix of new neighborhood shops and cafes, the redevelopment plans for The Collection will soon be brought to life with sweeping public spaces, activated sidewalks, and vibrant storefronts. Metro connectivity will be enhanced and pedestrian and vehicular access will be improved, creating a truly one-of-a-kind experience in a one-of-a-kind location.

The center was developed by private developer The Chevy Chase Land Company, a company founded in 1890 by U.S. Senator Francis G. Newlands who acquired a great deal of property in the D.C. area. In the 1950's, two of suburban Maryland's first strip shopping centers were built. One of these shopping centers was Chevy Chase Center Stores, now known as The Collection.
