Bethesda, Md.-based developer The Meridian Group has announced new restaurants, stores, and a fitness studio to the lineup of tenants at its mixed-use development The Boro in Tysons Va., about 15 miles of Washington, D.C.
Among the new restaurants at the project will be El Bebe, serving Mexican fare, and Open Road, an upscale American bistro. The pair will be taking about 10,000 square feet and will be run by Falls Church, Va.-based The Metropolitan Hospitality Group.
Additional new tenants include City National Bank leasing 4,300 square feet; CaliBurger and F45 Training with about 2,300 square feet each; Paper Source snagging 2,000 square feet; Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams taking 1,500 square feet; and the Shade Store with 1,000 square feet.
The move-ins will occur between the end of this year through mid-2020.
The new businesses join two marquee anchors, the 70,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market which opened Oct. 30, and ShowPlace Icon, a cinema with 14 screens, a restaurant and bar, slated to open in the first quarter of 2020, as well as a roster of other businesses.
“We are excited about all of these new additions that help make The Boro unlike any other development in Tysons,” Caroline Flax, an associate for The Meridian Group, told Commercial Observer. “The Boro is fast becoming one the area’s top destinations for shopping, dining and entertainment, a unique community where residents can live, work, dine, shop and relax.”
Situated within walking distance of the Greensboro Metro station, the first phase of The Boro, spanning 1.7 million square feet, features approximately 700 residential rental units and 260,000 square feet of retail.
At full completion, the development will comprise more than 1,500 residential units, 1.9 million square feet of office space, 350,000 square feet of retail and a 250,000-square-foot hotel.
“We’re looking forward to rounding out The Boro’s existing offerings,” Flax said. “It will provide an experience like no other in Tysons, with pedestrian-friendly streets, open spaces and a vibrant mix of retail, entertainment, office and residential space.”
