Not that old... are you kidding me, the place looks like a dump out of the early 90s.

Went there once and never again. That entire strip of fastfood there (aka initial gainseville) is a joke actually.

Who in their right mind would eat at one of these dilapidated places versus the clean and modern Chick Fil A, right across the road.

The fact that the Franchise/Corp did squat to renovate, even after CFA opened, shows they either don't give a crap or are clueless.

I think I read in the paper that this was going to be a self storage place....yay.
Yep, that's exactly what that prime spot needs right there, a self-storage.

Yea. Went to that chick fil a and drove around in a circle to enter the line then got the wrong food. How did the powers of pw county allow them to alter the layout of the d. Thru at that location. Created a real mess and a pedestrian hazard. Then they have young people running around through traffic taking orders. Why would you risk a persons safety for some chicken?

So has Nando's, although as for Nando's it is still listed on Nando's own website. I'm hoping they are just reconfiguring the layout of the building plan. It would be unusual for 3 independent tenants to all break leases simulataneously. Definately would stink to lose all 3 of those tentants if true though...

I'm hoping they're just reconfiguring the layout too - but we'll have to wait and see.

They took several of the outdated documents off the site too. I'm guessing they are adjusting and getting ready to make a complete official announcement. At least we can all hope.

Or the restaurants are trying to figure a business model that includes future undecided federal mandate. Obama care. Many service industries are reducing hours, automation and other tactics to remain viable. Consumer is once again not spending. Dc economy may have a speed bump in the near future.

I'm guessing they're probably just tweaking the layout a bit. Remember in a lot of cases the initial design and what they actually build can be different after they get a better idea of demand. They might even remove or consolidate some pads in Phase II or something if they don't get enough bites. At least that's my guess.

If you look at the layout, you can see that space F-1 is now 1,582sqft. It used to be listed as 800sqft or so, so it looks like they did a complete change to that half of that building. So they would have to get new leases from all the tenants that were there. I know Pinkberry was in that building and I'm pretty sure that's where Nando's was, too.

uh oh.. It went from 11 (excluding BJ's and Theater) buildings marked as having tenants to 7.

A good number used to just say tenant.

They did add Charming Charlie to the list.
They have also added photos of construction.
Building B, D, F and Pad C are going up now.

Although they still list Bar Louies and Nando's in their updated brochure (page 3), the recently updated interactive map on the original vagateway.com website, as well as the existing press release still on the Peterson site.

If only one of them was removed I would assume they broke the lease, but 3 leaving at once I am guessing they just haven't decided exactly which location they will be in. Time will tell though...

We'll soon see.
Interesting on page 11 they show tenants along the top and it includes Pinkberry and Caribou Coffee (which is new to me).
I can't tell when this document was made/updated.

That brochure was updated Feb 15, 2013. The flyer was updated Feb 19, 2013. Note that when you are in the document you can right click and choose "document properties" to see this.

I doubt they lost 3 tenants between last Friday and the Tuesday after a long holiday weekend, although anything is possible. And good eye on the Caribou Coffee, looks like that is a tenant as well(at least it was last Friday lol).

Tell me when this thread is updated:
