Good Fortune Grocery Presents Bold Design Plan for Eden Center Location

A New York-based Asian-American grocery chain, Good Fortune Grocery, seeking to locate its first store in the Washington, D.C. area at the Eden Center in the City of Falls Church, made a preliminary presentation of a redesign of the frontage of its intended new location to the F.C. Planning Commission tonight.

Incorporating suggestions from the City’s Architectural Advisory Board, the plan is to demolish the front of the building in the Eden Center that used to house the Ames Department Store and National Wholesale Liquidators and construct an impressive new design in keeping with the dominant architectural themes of the rest of the Eden Center. The steps will require some waivers in the site plan approval process before the Planning Commission which will begin to be considered at the commission’s Jan. 22, 2013 meeting.
