Building Permit Up at the New Ballston Sweetgreen

Salad-and-froyo joint Sweetgreen is coming to Ballston as soon as next month. And one of our spies has spotted the future restaurant’s building permit.

According to the permit, the new Sweetgreen will be located in 4075 Wilson Boulevard, a stone’s throw away from Ballston Common Mall and the same building in which Rustico will be opening soon.

We also learn from the permit that Sweetgreen has so far paid the county $10,187.84 in fees. Ouch — that’s a lot of $4 frozen yogurts.

Going forward, it will be interesting to see if north Arlington has enough of a froyo appetite to support Red Mango, TangySweet and Sweetgreen.

Update at 11:40 a.m. — Sweetgreen’s Phil Moldavski tells us that the store will open at some point this fall, after the company’s Reston store opens.

Why Ballston, we asked?

“We really love the Ballston neighborhood,” Moldavski wrote. “It has [lots] of young professionals and other like-minded people who are likely to appreciate what Sweetgreen is all about… we are excited to be coming there.”

Moldavski says the Ballston Sweetgreen will be similar in design to their current stores.

Thanks to “A Sweetgreen Cobb Salad Addict” for the tip.

    I wish Arlington had a Dairy Queen appetite. I’m all froyo/gelato/smoothie-ed out:(

      Katie, I agree. You can always go to the DQ in Bailey’s Crossroads (on S. Jefferson St), though. But that requires a car.

    • Stacey

      Don’t forget about Bocatto Gelato, Baskin Robbins, Cold Stone, Carvel, TCBY and Toby’s.

      I also could not agree more on the DQ wish for Arlington – even their greasy burgers and fries are pretty solid.

    • Let’s Be Free

      Absolutely agree. The kids would love it. And for us parents who are getting a handle on the spread, the DQ salads aren’t bad.

    Right by my building, awesome! My frozen yogurt purchases are going to keep them in business.

    • TGEoA

      I bet you will keep Curves in business too.

        A random act of misogyny wrapped in a weak attempt at humor. You must be so much fun at parties.

        • Neighbor

          Do you really think that guy gets invited to parties?

  • MC

    Nice news.

    For those whose tastes having evolved since turing eight years old, guess you can move to near a place with truck stops, Gainesville maybe?
