Our Tysons location connects directly to the Metro (the Greensboro stop on the Silver Line), features a state-of-the-art fitness center with complimentary towel service, and boasts both a stunning rooftop terrace and game room.
If you thought it couldn't get any better, think again. Our Tysons spot is in the heart of the Boro, the in-the-works, highly walkable, 1.7-million-square-foot mixed-use development whose first phase of construction, on the high-rise Boro Tower, was completed earlier this year. Residential and retail locations are set to open this summer, and a Whole Foods -- to be the largest in the region -- is slated for a late summer or early fall 2019 opening. Below, we give the four top coming-soon spots that make working at our Boro location the way to go.
Whole Foods is the chain that's made shopping for groceries enjoyable again. Its reputation for offering beautiful, fresh food -- often organic -- precedes it. The cheese section at its locations frequently holds up to 1,000 varieties of cheese, and the bakery is full of a huge array of delicious-smelling, fresh-baked goods, with everything from intricately decorated and frosted cupcakes, to tartines, baguettes, and bagels. And the pizza? Besides being available by the slice, it can be freshly made to order by the pie, with an array of toppings you'd never get from Dominoes (Broccoli and ricotta on a white pizza? No problem).
Perhaps surprisingly, given its reputation for priciness, Whole Foods frequently offers amazing deals for the hungry: hot-lunch-buffet specials, two-pizza and pizza-carryout discounts, and much more. For everyday savings, check out this list of items that cost less at Whole Foods than they do at competitor stores.
The ShowPlace ICON Theatre, which has six other locations nationwide, is well-known among movie-goers and theater aficionados for its many amenities. Among these: wall-to-wall screens, ultra-high-quality sound and "ICONX," the theater's 21-and-older, reserved sections with memory-foam seating. Plus, when you become a theater member, you'll receive discounts on some tickets and concession items, as well as invitations to exclusive screenings and VIP events and tailored email offers.
Handmade, fresh pasta, anyone? At North Italia, that's what you get, every day. For midday noshing, there's a comfort-food-rich lunch menu. Scratch-made Bolognese, the house specialty, spaghetti and meatballs, and chicken parmesan are just a few of the items you'll find on it. For evening dining, the waitstaff will happily tell you which choices from the extensive wine menus -- both red and white -- your entree will best accompany. Top picks from the supper offerings include diver scallops with sweet corn risotto and wagyu skirt steak with asparagus and sweet potato. No outrageous prices here, either; the most expensive item on the dinner menu is, by quite a bit, the beef tenderloin, at $40.
You might not want to spend more of your free time here than you need to, but the Verizon store is an enormously useful retail location to have on-hand. With smartphone damage nearly a constant problem among U.S. adults, it's hard to imagine how having the largest cellular carrier in skipping distance from your desk could be a bad thing. So fear not. If you're working at our ultra-convenient, super-chic Boro spot, Verizon really has got you covered.
