Northern Virginia developer Clarke-Hook is set to open a third mixed-use building at University Commerce Center in Ashburn. The 47,000-square-foot facility will open next month.

The project will include approximately 10,000 square feet of retail space, with the remaining 37,000 square feet for office space. The first two buildings at the site, located north of Route 7 near Loudoun County Parkway, opened in the early 2000s.

“We're excited to continue developing in Loudoun County,” said Ann Orem, vice president at Clarke-Hook.

Taking space in the new development is YogaShak, which will be moving to a larger space from its current location next door. IT firm Lateetud and its head hunting firm Techaxis will be growing into a larger space, as well.

Orem said an Asian-American fusion restaurant called Saigon Outcast will be opening in the first half of the year, and former Washington Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall plans to launch an upscale men's grooming lounge called Twenty Three, which is scheduled to open this spring.

The Brickyard co-working space, located near the new property, is also expanding in the new building with an additional 1,500 square feet. Orem said they will be trying a new concept, called Brickyard Annex, focusing on the day and flex user. 

Brickyard Annex will offer more collaborative space, flexible working spaces, Wi-Fi and conference rooms.

“We're getting a very positive response to it, and we have redesigned the new space to respond to the changing nature of the work force. We've learned a lot from what we've done with Brickyard. ” Orem said.

This will greatly help the other two buildings in the shopping center that are only 2/3rds occupied.
