WBJ: Mount Vernon Triangle to be seat of Buddha Bar
Washington Business Journal staff reporter Missy Frederick follows up on the buzz about Little Buddha coming to 455 Mass Ave. Frederick reports that the plans are for a full scale 9,600 s.f. Buddha Bar rather than a scaled down Little Buddha.
“To sign a deal for a 9,400-square-feet restaurant in this market is really amazing,” said Bill Dickinson, senior director of brokerage for The Rappaport Cos., who represented the landlord.
The street-level Mount Vernon Triangle location has a soaring two-floor space that provides room for Buddha Bar’s dramatic decor, such as a large gold Buddha statue, among other accents.
Buddha Bar probably will not occupy the location until late 2009, Dickinson said.
