The WHEATON PLAZA Woodward & Lothrop, which anchored the east end of the mammoth mall. It was the DC-based chain's sixth branch.

A cut-away view of the circa-'60 shopping center, going west-to-east, or from Wards to "Woodies". The mall was configured as an upper level of retail, with a service basement below. A small outward-facing section, known as the Plaza South Stores, was situated in the southeast corner of the complex. It was accessed from a Lower Level parking lot.
