Big news on the retail scene in the Ashburn area — the nascent Riverside Square development north of Ashburn along Route 7 has formally announced the first tenants that will be coming to the neighborhood shopping center.

And it could include the first-ever fitness club from AARP — the national over-50 organization.

Today’s announcement includes the pending arrival of the Texas Roadhouse restaurant — The Burn broke that story last March and confirmed it last November.  There will also be a Sheetz gas station and convenience store.

But it’s the announcement of a 20,000 s.f. fitness club that has piqued the most interest.

While the fitness facility has not been named, The Burn learned several months ago that AARP the national organization for people ages 50 and over — was exploring opening an AARP-branded fitness club at Riverside Square. We’re told it would be the first of its kind in the nation.

The gym would reportedly cater to members over age 40. While the AARP deal and the details haven’t been officially confirmed, The Burn has heard this news from multiple sources.

Riverside Square is a 90,000 s.f. center being developed by Monument Realty along Riverside Parkway near the intersection with Ashburn Village Boulevard.

    The absolute last thing that Ashburn needs next to data centers is more shopping centers. Far, far too many. I hope it is better designed with more parking than the terrible Belmont Chase center…

      What would you suggest instead? MORE houses that would add substantial amount more traffic? At least with data centers, the amount of traffic from them is minimal.

      Yes, whoever designed the parking lot at BC should find a new job…

    You can thank Bohler Engineering and Regency for that design.

    Don’t blame the developers, blame the County review staff and the Loudoun County FSM
