Korean quick-serve restaurant SeoulSpice, fast-casual burger concept BurgerFi and Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls will all be located in the neighborhood’s pedestrian-friendly retail corridor, with anticipated openings in the fall of 2024.

When complete, West Falls will feature condominium residences, apartments, senior living facilities, outdoor spaces, a wellness-focused medical office, a hotel and numerous shopping and dining destinations. 

Tierra Encantada will occupy 10,000 square feet at 7131 Magnolia Street, which will be the early education program’s second Northern Virginia location among  15 schools, joining its Alexandria spot at 401 Ford Avenue. 

Local eatery SeoulSpice is taking 2,000 square feet at 150 West Falls Station Boulevard, its eighth location in the D.C. region. 

Burger chain BurgerFi also signed for 2,000 square feet at 170 West Falls Station Boulevard, joining more than 125 of its domestic and international restaurants.
