EDENS, the developers behind Union Market, announced today the 2015 opening of an Angelika Film Center as part of the 45-acre Union Market district, which will ultimately span 7 million (!!) square feet. There is already an Angelika at the Mosaic District in Fairfax, and it shows “a range of film and alternative programming.” I’ve never been to that one, so I’m just guessing here, but it sounds like this will be something along the lines of another E Street Theater – at least, as far as programming goes. But check out the rendering above – this is going to be a heck of a lot fancier than E Street! And adding another layer of fun, the press release states that the Angelika “will serve a food and drink menu designed by Food Network/Cooking Channel Veterans, Bruce Seidel and Chef Santos Loo.” Sweet! Dinner and a show!
While the Angelika is slated to open at the Union Market district in 2015, the press release is a bit unclear as to where exactly the building will be located. (Fingers crossed that it won’t replace the current cadre of wholesalers next to Union Market. But the more I learn about EDENS’ plans for the area, the grimmer things look for the future of those wholesalers…)
Now that you know a bit more about the big plans for the Union Market district, do you think this is a good area to buy in? Me too. Click here to check out listings near Union Market, or shoot me an email if you want to learn more.
