Capitol Crossing Expands Union Square Hospitality Partnership
Tuesday August 15, 2017
As reported in the Washington Business Journal, Capitol Crossing, the 2.2 million square foot mixed-use development project just to the south and east of Mount Vernon Triangle, has expanded its partnership with acclaimed New York restaurateur, Danny Meyer, who will open two restaurants at 200 Massachusetts Avenue, the first office building to deliver in the project, currently scheduled for 2018. One restaurant is planned as a 20-seat breakfast and lunch concept and the other is Union Square Café, a 175-seat restaurant with additional seating in a summer garden.
In its recently-released newsletter, Capitol Crossing News (.pdf), MVT CID President & CEO Kenyattah Robinson shared the following statement about the project: “We look forward to Capitol Crossing welcoming its first occupants, patrons and guests. The project promises to create a stronger connection between Capitol Hill, Mount Vernon Triangle and East End downtown, further strengthening local retail growth and business opportunities and adding a new destination for our growing local residential and consumer communities. We’ve already seen progress with the opening of 395’s Massachusetts Avenue Portal, as well as the reconnection of the street grid to its original intent. And we thank the project team for their partnership throughout this process.”
