EDENS weaves retail into its new D.C. headquarters

BY Al Urbanski

EDENS, the developer behind the South Bay project in Boston and Preston Royal in Dallas, is moving its headquarters to the Union Market District it developed in Washington, D.C.

True to its background in retail, the company’s new workspace will incorporate two public retail offerings: The Village Café coffee shop and Politics & Prose, an independent bookstore with a strong local following.

“This place feeds our entrepreneurial spirit to learn and gather insights while engaging with the shopper in a human way. Retail is constantly being disrupted and this creates opportunity,” said EDENS CEO Jodie W. McLean.

Both the bookstore and the coffee shop will double as board room and learning lab for EDENS to engage with the community and implement pilot retail projects. The ground floor will be open to the public.
