Ashburn area residents will want to keep their eyes on the new parking garage at Loudoun Station, which just opened to vehicles. Not because a parking garage is that exciting but because of the new retail spaces on the ground floor.
The new spaces are covered with “mock” storefronts meant to get the community excited and hopefully entice new restaurants, shops and others businesses to lease space there. The new spaces are on the first floor of the parking garage, more or less across the street from the Starplex movie theater.
No word yet on any possible tenants for these spaces. There are a number of other spaces still available for rent in the existing buildings in Loudoun Station. One would expect as we get closer to the arrival of the Metro in Ashburn, these spaces will become more and more desirable.
Meanwhile, we’re eagerly awaiting the opening of the new Señor Tequila’s Mexican Grill & Bar — said to be in the next few weeks — as well as the arrival of Mahana Poke, which is supposed to take over the former Firenza Pizza place.
