As Whole Foods prepares to open next week, several new businesses are also planning to open their doors in The Boro throughout November.
At least five new stores and businesses that were aiming to open in late summer or early fall have extended their planned opening dates to November.
Coworking company Spaces plans to open its office spaces at The Boro on Monday, Nov. 11, according to Mark Pankowski, a spokesperson for the development.
The stores and restaurants opening in the new development by the Greensboro Metro station may face a slow start at first.
John Beinert, a senior associate with Greystar Development, told Tysons Reporter that he keeps tabs on other regional development groups like Meridian Group, which developed The Boro.
Beinert said that March, April, May, June and July are the best months for a new development to host its grand opening, adding that people tend to move during this time and explore new places in a neighborhood.
Despite an off-season start, he said that the timeline shouldn’t hurt the development.
“You’ve just got to get to the next season,” he said, mentioning that the Whole Foods and other businesses in The Boro will attract people to the area.
Beinert also said that the new businesses will benefit Greystar’s four nearby developments, which include the Adaire Apartments.
“Whole Foods is a game-changer in a neighborhood,” Beinert said.
