The first retail tenants at the Heming apartment building coming to Scotts Run in Tysons have been confirmed.
The Japanese restaurant Modan and fitness studio Body Fit Training have both leased ground-floor space in the 28-story high-rise at 1800 Chain Bridge Road, developer Skanska announced yesterday (Monday).
According to the Washington Business Journal, which first reported the leases, Modan comes from an affiliate of restauranteur Joon Yang, whose existing ventures include American Prime in Tysons and Epic Smokehouse in Pentagon City.
Described as “contemporary and sophisticated,” the restaurant will serve “modern Japanese fare, sushi and a highly unique and exclusive Omakase experience” when it opens in spring 2024, according to Skanska.
The press release highlights plans to use seafood from Japan’s Tsukiji fish market and a “unique approach to dry-aged fish.”
Modan will occupy nearly 7,000 square feet with “a grand entranceway, stunning restaurant accents steeped in Japanese flair, a chic bar and dining areas and private dining room.”
For Body Fit Training, the upcoming Tysons location will be its first studio in Northern Virginia. The gym says it delivers a customized, personal training-like approach in a group setting, offering a “progressive mix of cardio and strength workouts.”
The gym has leased 3,374 square feet at Heming and is expected to open late this summer.
“We designed this project with the community top-of-mind, and we’re so pleased to have these two retail leases join our neighborhood,” said Mark Carroll, executive vice president and regional manager of Skanska USA Commercial Development’s D.C. market. “We are very excited to welcome Modan and Body Fit Training to Heming.”
Under construction since August 2020, Heming will consist of 410 apartment units supported by 38,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 49,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a 25th-story outdoor courtyard for residents and a three-story plaza called the Levels.
The building is projected to finish construction this summer.
When fully developed, Scotts Run will consist of 6.5 million square feet of construction, including Heming and the completed Kingston and Haden apartments, Mitre 4 office building and Archer Hotel Tysons.
Though the neighborhood’s retail elements are only just starting to roll out, Modan will have some competition when it opens: the Herndon restaurant Sushi Umi is slated to open a new location this summer just across the street at at 7615 Colshire Road.
For now, the primary attraction for residents looking to grab a bite to eat is ShipGarten, the outdoor pop-up featuring restaurants and bars in shipping containers at 7581 Colshire Drive.
