When Regency Centers signed Whole Foods Market to anchor its new retail development — Belmont Chase — in Ashburn, Virginia, the developer further elevated an already exciting project.
With a projected summer 2015 opening, the 80,000-sq.-ft. center will include metro-D.C.’s first Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant, Cava Mezze Grill, Peet’s Coffee and Tea, and PR Fresh Look Salon, among other soon-to-be-announced restaurants and retailers.
The 40,000-sq.-ft. Whole Foods marks its first store in wealthy Loudoun County with this newest store. Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant also makes its market debut in Belmont Chase with an 11,000-sq.-ft. location. Both Cava Mezze Grill and Peet’s Coffee and Tea are continuing their market expansion with the additions.
“The anticipation for this development has been palpable,” said Devin Corini, VP Investments, Regency. “Northern Virginia, especially Loudoun County, has experienced tremendous growth. Belmont Chase will raise the bar for retail in Loudoun County.”
As a cornerstone of the growing Belmont Executive Center, the 18-acre Belmont Chase will offer approximately 80,000 sq. ft. of retail, dining and professional services. The center will include amenities for community enjoyment including outdoor gathering spaces, dining patios, lakeside views in a relaxing atmosphere and elegant design elements with reclaimed wood, brick and steel. Additionally, Regency Centers is committed to the pursuit of LEED Certification for its retail shops.
Belmont Chase is located in Belmont Executive Center, at the intersection of Claiborne Parkway and Leesburg Pike (US-7), and at the gateway of the Toll Brothers’ 2,137-home golf course community, Belmont Estates. Belmont Chase will serve as a catalyst for continued development of Belmont Executive Center, which includes 1.2 million sq. ft. of future office space and hotel uses.
