Would signature Taylor facade fit in well at City Vista?

Yesterday the big news finally broke that Taylor Gourmet Deli will be coming to City Vista this fall. Today I put it out to all of you – would the signage and signature garage door from their H Street NE location fit in at City Vista?

Also, it’s worth noting Eden’s and Avant updated their City Vista site map last night:

Notice that while E&A doesn’t yet merge Bay 70 into Busboys they have consolidated Bays 120 and 130 together into one ~3550sf space. Also appears that Chevy Chase did not lease all of Bay 20 leaving another small unnumbered vacant bay beside it.

    Think the signage and garage door would fit in fine. Only question if patrons want to have such an unobstructed view of the strip club like BB&P's has.

    zooming in tight on the site image bay 80 now has a door that is 4/5 the width of its entire frontage. that would confirm the garage door concept.

    Not only does Taylor's facade look a lot like the typical City Vista facade, it also looks a bit like the facades of a lot of other Mt. Vernon projects, like Buddha Bar. So long as the interior is nice, it's hard to go wrong with a glass storefront.

    I think the facade looks great, and with sandwiches that good, i dont think anyone will be complaining about the facade. does anyone know when construction will begin???

    I think the garage door is distinctive and will add character and charm. It will fit in even better when the eventual art installation in front of Busboys arrives (ETA unknown). But I would suggest using a darker steel color for the garage door than the aluminum in the photo I've included.
