The formal groundbreaking of the much-anticipated Lincoln Properties’ “Reserve at Tinner Hill” occurred amidst cool but clear conditions this morning, with the usual A-list of City of Falls Church celebrities on hand. The brief ceremony culminating with the pitching of some sand by dignitaries in hardhats and a lot of cordial conversations. The event mirrored the one two weeks ago held by Rushmark to launch its Harris Teeter mixed use project four blocks away.

A representative of the Fresh Market was on hand today to assure everyone that his supermarket is “definitely coming, definitely.” The model will be a newer urban design catering to a younger clientele. There may not be that many “millenials” in Falls Church right now, but that’s going to change, a broker for the Fresh Market told the News-Press.
