I'm surprised you refer to Skyland as "something you'd see in Gaithersburg," especially when the example you refer to is Washingtonian Center. Maybe WC is a shopping mall, but it is mixed-use, walkable and connects to other mixed-use, walkable developments.

We can only say so much about the Skyland site plan because it's not very detailed, but it looks like the buildings come up close to each of the surrounding streets, so there could be retail frontage on Good Hope Road and internally as well. It's a very "urban" solution, and more so than the store on Georgia Avenue, which is arguably in a denser area and one that's seen far more investment than the area around Skyland.
