Best of Mosaic District Fairfax VA - 2020

What is Mosaic District

 

Mosaic District is a relatively new redeveloped area in Merrifield located at Lee Highway and Gallows Road.  It’s now a privately owned town center that was built on a previously unattractive 31 acre industrial site.  

Mosaic District, Fairfax, VA  

A company called Edens, a private retail developer, collaborated with townhouse and apartment home-builders to create  stylish multi-use urban neighborhood community with shopping boutiques, a hotel, a movie theater, number of office spaces, restaurants, parking garages, large pedestrian-focused sidewalks and modern housing with rooftop access.  

 

What To Do in a Mosaic

 

Besides being a popular shopping destination, Mosaic is famous for its Angelika movie theater with its large outdoor terrace facing Strawberry Park. The park is a community anchor point for picnics, yoga, and gathering events. Large open area with artificial grass attracts young professionals who come to catch up with friends or chill in the shade with a laptop or book.

Nearby residents from Merrifield and Fairfax come to mosaic for shopping needs. Large nationwide retailers, such as Target and Mom’s Organic, surrounded by 3-level free parking garages. Smaller shops represented by regional diverse stores, such as clothing brands, perfume and makeup stores, jewelry and accessory shops, home and decor stores, gift and crafting shops and more.  Each storefront has its own unique look which make the “Mosaic” name especially suitable for this development complex.  

 

After shopping, you can rest in one of the restaurants, cafes and bars. Many of which now offer outdoor dining.  

 

They host outdoor events, films and fairs on a weekly basis and these are great for family outings with kids.
