International Grocer Fresh World Signs 52K SF Lease in DC Suburbs


Fresh World has signed a 52,000-square-foot lease at the Market at Opitz Crossing in Woodbridge, Va., with owner Klein Enterprises.

The international grocer will serve as the new anchor tenant for the retail center, taking over the space that was previously occupied by Price Rite, according to Klein. The lease terms were not disclosed.

“Fresh World will serve as our anchor supermarket with its diverse and high-quality selection of groceries,” Patricia Palumbo, Klein Enterprises’ director of leasing, said. “We believe they will receive a welcome and warm response from Woodbridge.”

Fresh World is scheduled to open for business in the spring, marking its fourth location in the NoVA area, with stores in Herndon, Manassas and Springfield. It stocks its shelves with groceries for various cuisines, including American, Korean, Latin and Indian. 

Located at 2042 Daniel Stuart Square, at the intersection of Opitz Boulevard and Jefferson Davis Highway (soon to be renamed Richmond Highway), the property is 25 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. 

Baltimore-based Klein Enterprises acquired the 157,700-square-foot shopping center four years ago for $29.25 million.

The property is currently 92 percent leased with a tenant roster that includes Escape Room Woodbridge and T-Mobile.
