The long-awaited opening of acclaimed True Food Kitchen in Bethesda, MD is scheduled for Wednesday, June 14, 2017. This sophisticated, healthy dining concept will occupy the entire 6,400 square foot retail space in Washington Property Company’s Solaire Bethesda luxury apartment community, which delivered in late 2016 and has been leasing rapidly.
Bethesda, MD-based Washington Property Company has completed construction of its latest and most upscale urban living destination, Solaire Bethesda, with 139 luxury rental apartments atop street-level retail space that will feature a True Food Kitchen restaurant scheduled to open in early 2017.
Three exciting new restaurants have leased space and will open later this year on the street level of The Colonel, a newly completed apartment community in the rapidly transforming Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC. Shaw resident Josh Phillips will launch his first restaurant venture, Espita Mezcalería, bringing artisanal mezcals and Oaxacan food to Shaw. Co-owners of two of the city’s most wildly popular and acclaimed restaurants, The Red Hen and Boundary Stone, will open a new Roman and Italian-American concept called All Purpose, with The Red Hen chef/co-owner Michael Friedman manning the kitchen. Next door, award-winning pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac, chef and owner of Buttercream Bakeshop, will open her first storefront shop.
Mill Creek Residential is developing and leasing Modera Tempo, a new transit-friendly mixed-use community in the West End of Alexandria, VA. With 492 modern apartment homes and 15,000 square feet of retail space complemented by a wide range of luxurious resident amenities, Modera Tempo is the first new development to be completed within the Landmark/Van Dorn Small Area Plan. “The launch of Modera Tempo is an important catalyst to the long-planned redevelopment of the Van Dorn corridor, from here to Landmark Mall,” said Alexandria Mayor William Euille at the community’s grand opening event. “Over the next two decades, the entire West End of Alexandria will be transformed.”
