At the beginning of October we rejoiced over news that restaurateur Michael Landrum had signed a lease for the old T-Mobile space at City Vista on Fifth Street NW. Later that day TBD followed up with the Edens and Avant, the retail landlord for City Vista, and learned that Landrum was also in talks for a second retail space on K Street between Mandu and the gym entrance.
When November rolled around a Washingtonian chat revealed that Landrum’s plan for the 1200SF bay on 5th Street is a cafe/bakeshop named Ryse. Construction began immediately.
Tonight I’m happy to report Landrum has executed the second lease and will most likely bring a Ray’s Hellburger to K Street. City Vista could soon be the destination for Obama’s next burger run. To any MVT residents interested in trying out Hellburger in Rosslyn or Rivereast to get an early glimpse I endorse the New Jack Zing with charred jalapenos and piranha sauce cooked medium rare (aka “recommended”).
Vida Fitness finalized their lease for the old Results space last week. Once Chipotle finally executes the lease on the former City Vista Sales center the retail component for the project will be 100% accounted for.
