Looks like Golfsmith will also be a tenant at Virginia Gateway (I'm assuming Promenade?) based on this article:

http://www.bisnow.com/dc-real-estate/2012/12/...

"Peterson Cos' Marc Menick, Paul Weinschenk, and Nick Over (missing was Andrew Kabat) announced the first wave of leases at the 300k SF Promenade at Virginia Gateway. The $70M center's anchor will be a 14-screen Regal movie theater, opening this coming fall. It'll also offer Ann Taylor Loft, White House | Black Market, Soma, one of the country's first 10 La Tagliatella restaurants, Bar Louis, Nando's Peri Peri, and Pinkberry.

Dave (three pics up) tells us he and Matt sealed the deal on one more Virginia Gateway tenant, Golfsmith, right there at ICSC."

I believe the entire center is known as Virginia Gateway and it is broken down into smaller pieces. For example the northern shops is Atlas Walk (at Virginia Gateway), the big box stores is Gateway Crossing, and the southern end will be The Promenade. I could be wrong though, maybe it's changed since the initial layout was crafted. I know The Promenade was originally going to be called Market Square if I'm not mistaken.

I don't know anything about Golfsmith and how large their stores usually are. I would think it would be most desirable to be in the new Promenade area, but if the stores need a larger footprint... I'd guess one of the two vacant spots (former Linen's and Things/World Market).

Yup all of the components of the center are referred to as Virginia Gateway (Atlas Walk, Giant Center, Gateway Plaza, Gateway Crossing, Gateway Commons, Promenade, Wentworth Green). As for Golfsmith I was assuming the Promenade component only because the preceding paragraph was talking about the Promenade component, but the exact wording for Golfsmith just said Virginia Gateway which might mean somewhere else within Virginia Gateway. I think it would actually make more sense for Golfsmith to go in the component near Sports Authority (Gateway Commons) as I believe Golfsmith's are pretty large.

It is listed here. http://www.vagateway.com/shopping.cfm...

Not that it means it won't be in Promenade, but based on footprint. I'm going to guess it goes into the Gateway Commons part.

It'll be called Promenade at the Gateway and is developed by Peterson Companies. There'll be a movie theatre and shopping centers

Yup looks that way. None of the Promenade tenants are on that list so looks like one of those big Gateway Commons vacancies will be filled soon. A great fit for the area too.

If that's the case that would be great news. I'm of the mindset that filling up current vacancies is always better than building new centers then trying to fill the pads later. Not only does it just look better when you're driving around but the lack of vacancies can potentially make the area more appealing to prospective tenants.

I'd normally agree, but it may be that they are coming here due to the new center being built.
I'd guess a golf centric retailer would do well there.

Yeah, I was speaking in general, not specific to Golfsmith. It's always a good sign though when such a large retailer fills up a vacancy.

I happened to go on Google Maps just now and noticed that they updated some of their imagery for the area. It actually shows the interchange and Promenade construction, so it must be pretty recent. It's nice to see that considering most of the imagery is old. Based on my development alone I would say it was last taken in mid 2008.

The new Promenade section should help all the retailers in Gateway Commons as well I would think. Gives them much more visibility and traffic flow. I think if World Market stuck it out they would eventually have been succesful there with the Promenade opening.

Anyone knows if Starbucks coming to the Haymarket location, it will beat driving across RT29.

I thought PF Changs and CheeseCake Factory would be one of the first to lease at the Promenade

PF Changs doesn't make sense with Pei Wei across the way. Cheesecake Factory is a different story.

PF Changs was one of the restaurants listed when the initial list of tenants was released prematurely, even though I do realize Pei Wei is there too. Pei Wei would definitely take away from any lunch crowd. As for TCF, not sure they were ever listed for the Gateway and would probably not survive in Gainesville for now. Just not enough lunch crowd. Need more corporate offices. I would enjoy a Melting Pot closer than Reston, and they might do well since they are only open for the dinner crowd anyways.

For anyone interested both McDonald's and Sheetz had informal discussions with the Haymarket Architectural Review Board on Wednesday night. They provided the board with elevation drawings of their designs and discussed them for about 25min each.

McDonald's plans on just renovating the existing building to their newer style (if you're familiar with the one near the Fair Lakes shopping center they want it to look just like that).

Sheetz however is doing a complete tear down of their current building and putting a newer one up further back on the lot (where their stormwater management pond is). The benefit of this is not only will the building be newer but it will be further away from the new pumps they will install (and there will be more of those as well).

The board seemed skeptical about certain details both company's designs, but definitely seemed more impressed with the presentation Sheetz put on. They reiterated this is still very early in the process so I'm not sure what the timetable will be for any of this, I believe the next step is to come back in front of the board either next month or February after taking the board's input from Wednesday into consideration.

Do you realize that Pei Wei and PF Changs are the same company?

Looks like they moved in a construction trailer near the movie theater pad. Hopefully it is a sign that construction will start soon!

I think moving Sheets back from it's current location is part of a planned intersection improvement for Rt 15 and John Marshall Highway.
