ICSC Spotlight: Union Market signs 11 restaurants, Capital City Diner



Today at the International Council of Shopping Centers Convention, developer Edens told DCMud that the Union Market has 11 restaurants signed to the new development, including the Old Capital City Dining rail car.

The historic site, formerly known as the Capital City Market, is being redeveloped by J Street and Edens.

One of the eateries is the Old Capital City Diner which Edens bought on eBay for $40,000 according to the Washington Post. Have to assume that was an exciting bidding war. Probably worth it simply for the “buy now.”

The development of Union Market should be interesting, and no one has ever complained about more food. Another Edens spokesperson said the company is not ready to release the names of the 11 restaurants, but those will soon be released and an opening expected this summer.

Are all eleven restaurants going to be in the renovated Union Market building? Restaurants or vendors? are we looking at even more development in the short-term? Don't know what to make of this news.

Are these going to be chain restaurants? I dont know much about restaurant opening, but it would seem like chains are more likely to sign on to things in advance because they are less worried about uncertainty since their name recognition can automatically bring people there

No national chains, but many will be by well known local restaurant groups.

Mr. Andrews and the editors of DC MUD: Can you explain why, two weeks after publishing this, you still have not properly attributed the photo that you used?

You have been, and remain, in violation of the terms set for use of that photograph. You should either cease and desist, or come into compliance now.

Thank you.
