May 24, 2017 | by EYA

Just two years after groundbreaking, Westside at Shady Grove Metro is coming to life with the announcement of its first retailers, the addition of two new townhome models and numerous neighborhood amenities for residents.

Shops and Restaurants

Starbucks and Beauty Sense Nails are among the first retail tenants expected to open this September, in The Daley - a mixed-use building that features 333 luxury apartments ready for June move-in. Not ready to buy? The Daley at Westside offers rental apartments that allow you to apply your rent towards the purchase of a new townhome at Westside.

An attractive mix of restaurants and neighborhood convenience businesses are planned with additional announcements to come this summer. A grocery store and pharmacy are anticipated for future phases of the project.
