Washington Business Journal has an Exclusive!
that Mission Dos, a 10,000-square-foot, two-level, 400-seat restaurant from the owners of Hawthorne
will be opening in 2018 at the corner of Van and N Streets, in the ground floor of the new apartment building 1221 Van
(It's the space at the center of this photo, as seen from the Center Field Gate of Nats Park a short block away.)
The owners are planning to keep the 125-foot bar and the restaurant open late, and will "work to make Mission Dos a 365-day-a-year business," says WBJ. And there is a "stretch goal" to open in time for the All-Star Game, but We Shall See.
This is the first announced retail tenant for 1221 Van, which has 290ish apartments with leasing now underway. There is still an additional 17,000 square feet of retail space in the building to be spoken for.
