Based on our email, the work happening at the intersection of Ashburn Village Boulevard and Russell Branch Parkway is attracting a lot of attention. Trees have been removed from the northeast corner and mighty machines are moving dirt around.
Folks, that’s the start of construction on the new Ashbrook Marketplace shopping center.
As The Burn has been reporting (see stories here and here and here), Ashbrook Marketplace is a new center going up directly in front of the existing Ashbrook Commons shopping center. The two centers have different owners.
Ashbrook Marketplace will be the home of a new Lidl discount grocery store as well as Loudoun County’s first Cafe Rio Mexican Grill. So far, we also know the center will have a nail salon and a Shell gas station. Yes, there is another Shell station kitty corner (or catty corner) in the other shopping center. From what we understand, the two Shells will have the same owner.
The site work being done now will last through the winter. Construction on the Lidl store should start in the spring with a late 2019 opening.
