(Updated 4:10 p.m.) A new McDonald’s in Rosslyn appears close to opening in the new Central Place building.
External signage is up for the fast food restaurant, and on Tuesday morning construction crews were installing signs inside the windows too. Preparations continue inside the ground-floor space, while the sidewalks around the property appear largely complete.
Rosslyn’s previous McDonald’s at 1823 N. Moore Street closed in 2014 to make way for the Central Place development. At that time, a sign in the McDonald’s window stated it would be closed “indefinitely,” which left open the possibility that the eatery would return to Rosslyn in the future.
A company spokeswoman said the eatery is set to open this spring, although an exact date is to be determined.
