Leasing for the center has ramped up significantly with the signing of Ross Dress for Less as the anchor. New tenants joining the center include: Chipotle, Elevation Burger, Sarku Japan, Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt, The Academy at Harvard Square, Fireside Subs, TD Bank and more to be announced in the near future.



In late February, Combined Properties headquarters moved into a beautiful, state of the art office at 1025 Thomas Jefferson Street in Georgetown. The space is nearly 16,000 SF, has 3 conference rooms, an employee lounge, HD video conferencing and numerous amenities plus a 6,500 SF rooftop terrace with views of the Potomac. The bold contemporary interior décor represents the styling and vision Combined will be bringing to future retail and mixed-use projects.
