New Dunkin’ Donuts in Leesburg going up

The framing out of the building has started off Battlefield Parkway SE.

The new Dunkin’ Donuts location in Leesburg has “gone vertical” — meaning the site work and foundation are done and the building is now rising from the ground. The new doughnut shop is coming to the Oaklawn development at the intersection of Battlefield Parkway SE and Miller Drive SE.

We’re told the building itself should be done late this coming spring. After that, the Dunkin’ folks need to come in and “build out” the space for the restaurant, so we’re looking at an opening sometime Summer 2021 or later. Meanwhile, the neighboring space in the building, next door to the Dunkin’ has not been officially leased yet. No word on what tenant (or tenants) might take that spot.

Other new restaurants coming to Oaklawn include a Chick-fil-A right next door to the Dunkin’ Donuts. We’re told construction on the CFA should start in March. And, of course, across the street is the future spot of Loudoun’s first Sonic Drive-In restaurant. (The Burn broke the big news back in September. See that story here.) Design work has been underway and the first submissions to the county should happen in the next few weeks.

    Gentle reminder. The Dunkin company rebranded last year (1/1/2019) and dropped Donuts from their name, even though it still appears to be their primary staple. Just thought you would want to be in line with their current name. Either way, thanks for the continuing updates on all of these projects.

      Thanks Bill. We are aware of the name change. We’re just old school. 🙂
