Whole wheat bakery and cafe Spring Mill Bread Co. might be the latest local retail chain to make the Pershing Drive section of Lyon Park its new home.
Spring Mill Bread has locations on Capitol Hill and in Bethesda and Gaithersburg. It’s in discussions to move into a vacant retail space at 2209 Pershing Drive, ARLnow.com has learned.
The leasing documents have not been signed, we’re told, but the property owner, Equity Residential, has filed for building permits with the county in anticipation of a deal getting done.
If Spring Mill Bread signs on the dotted line, Pershing Drive would be in line for a shop that sells fresh-baked breads, baked treats and soups and sandwiches, in addition to coffee and sodas.
The baker would join Paisano’s Pizza, Bonchon and Streets Market among the retail options on Pershing Drive between Route 50 and N. Cleveland Street.
