Shops Open in Fairfax’s New “Urban District” at Mosaic


Sponsored Post
One stroll through Mosaic District and you’ll think you’ve landed somewhere between Capitol Hill and Bethesda.

DC’s favorite shops and restaurants are flocking to Mosaic District, a $150 million Edens development with retail anchors such as Matchbox Restaurant, Black’s, Cava, MOM’s Organic Market, Nieman Marcus Last Call Studio, Dawn Price Baby, Anthropologie, South Moon Under, Angelika Film Center and much, much more. Target, the largest retailer at Mosaic District, will open its doors this Sunday, October 14th.  A full list of retailers, opening dates and events is available at the Mosaic District website.


Also onsite are new townhomes by DC’s leading urban developer, EYA. The townhomes at Mosaic District feature three and four bedroom floorplans, contemporary architecture, garage parking, plus the company’s signature rooftop terraces. New homes start from the mid $600s and include luxury finishes such as hardwood flooring, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The townhomes are now 50% sold out and a limited number remain for Spring 2013 move-in.


In addition to the 40 shops and restaurants onsite, Mosaic District offers a shuttle to Dunn-Loring Metro station for easy access to the Orange line and downtown DC. It is perfectly situated where I-66, Route 50 and the Capital Beltway meet and Tyson’s Corner is a quick ten minute drive. Mosaic District is EYA’s 17th new home community in northern Virginia and a destination designed by leading retail shopping center developer Edens.

I've seen it coming...that Eya's Urban row-house design would turn to be a prominent thing. And with the establishment around like the shops and restaurants plus the fitness center, I do think people would love to be in that community.

I realize that DCmud is publicity venue for DCRE. Nevertheless, most of the articles are fairly professionally written. This gives credibility to the blog, despite the obvious potential for self-serving. This article, though, really reads as a publicity release, i.e. an advertisement. Doubtless there's something interesting going on in the "Mosaic District," but this article doesn't delve much.

Skidrowe,

I hope you'll find that our wall between the journalist side and the commercial and residential real estate side are is firm, and we forgo many opportunities in order to be a (free) source of information. Please note that at the top of this article it says "sponsored post", in all cap, bold letters. All such sponsored articles are labeled as such.

Thanks
-Ken

I went there last week. The new movie theater is super, and the newness feel of it all is good.

On the other hand, GGW noted it's very unfriendly to bicyclists and walkers should be aware of rolling stops by the surbanites. Of course, you get that in the District too.

All in all, good to see smart growth. BTW, is there a Yogi Berry??
