“The latest addition to the growing restaurant/retail scene at The Yards was announced today by the project’s master developer, Forest City Washington. TaKorean, the popular DC-based Korean BBQ taco purveyor has agreed to open a store location at The Yards in DC’s Capitol Riverfront area. The new store location for TaKorean, which was established in 2010 via a local food truck operation, will be located in Twelve12, the new-construction residential and retail component currently under construction at The Yards to be completed in spring 2014. The 1722 SF TaKorean location will be adjacent to the previously announced Sweetgreen store at Twelve12 on 4th Street SE near the intersection of Tingey Street SE.
At full build-out, The Yards will feature approximately 2,800 residential units, 1.8 million SF of office space and roughly 400,000 SF of retail/restaurants/entertainment and services. Twelve12 will offer 218 contemporary apartments with a full service, 50,000 SF Harris Teeter grocery store at street level. In addition a 28,000 SF Vida Fitness complex including its Penthouse Pool and Lounge, Bang Salon and Aura Spa components will be a located adjacent. With the signing of TaKorean, the retail space in Twelve12 is now 92% leased. Residential leasing will begin in the first quarter of 2014 with initial move-ins expected by June.

Osteria Morini, a casual restaurant featuring Northern Italian cuisine is the latest creation from renowned NYC Chef Michael White, is expected to open in mid November. The Yards will mark his restaurant debut in the DC market. Opening in December in the Lumber Shed is Agua 301 featuring a Modern Mexican menu from the owners of Zest Bistro on Barracks Row.
