If your secret dream has always been to run an off-brand 7-11 and you can't spell, your ship has come in: the "grosery" in the parking lot of Lake Anne Village Center is on the market, with what we'll politely call "extreme prejudice."
Landlord in processof evicting present tenant(convenience store&small cafe/rest.)Business for sale $85,000 with some OTB.Bldg and Business for sale @$634,000,Bldg separately for sale $549,000.85 grand will buy a lot of cheez curls.
But the news isn't all bad for Lake Anne. According to the Twitters, the Kalypso sports tavern is set to open any day:
Still skeptical? The restaurant's "Face Book" has pictures of people stone cold sitting around at tables, getting ready to open a restaurant or something.
Meanwhile, across town, the awesome Plaza America shopping center has changed hands.
A joint venture of New York-based Angelo, Gordon & Co. and Atlantic Realty Companies, Inc., one of the largest commercial real estate developers in the Washington, DC/Baltimore, MD region, today announced that it has purchased Plaza America Shopping Center in Reston, Virginia.In North Point, the pet store has closed its doors, meaning that people waiting in line for their fancy new iPhones at the nearby AT&T store won't be able to pass the time looking at the
Plaza America Shopping Center opened in 1995. Atlantic Realty developed and built the center, and Atlantic Realty has managed the property since that time. The center includes more than 164,000 square feet of national and local stores and services including Whole Foods, Michael’s, Champps, and Fitness First.
And finally, the old Ruby Tuesday in the fake downtown is now a FedEx office. The folks at Reston Town Center posted this somewhat demonic photo on their own fancy "Face Book" page:
We think someone needs to check the toner on that copier.
Actually, we're pleased with this last development. If a Ruby Tuesdays can become a FedEx office, it's only a matter of time until the Macaroni Grill magically transforms into a UPS Store.
