This week's Visions for Vacancies takes us to the granddaddy of Reston space for lease - the anchor spot at Tall Oaks Village Center.
The store has been empty since April of 2011, when Compare Foods - the second international grocery in two years- shut its doors.
Longtime anchor Giant Foods left Tall Oaks in 2007. In its place was international supermarket Fresh World, which closed in 2009 despite signing a 10-year lease. Compare Foods moved in in the fall of 2009 and was gone within 18 months.
Among them - so visibility from main roads, competition from other nearby shopping centers and a changing demographic close to the center. However, the demographic may be changing again with the 2013 opening of the Weihle Metrorail station and associated nearby development.
The grocery store space has new commercial real estate representation. Over the last several months, rumored new tenants have included a Dollar General and Gold's Gym, but Patch could not confirm any lease signings.
