Coffee and cafe chain Bluestone Lane, with locations in D.C.’s West End and Georgetown and another coming to Capitol Riverfront, will occupy space in a kiosk on Boro Park.

The restaurants will likely have plenty of customers.

The Boro is being developed on 15 acres within walking distance of the Greensboro Metro station and will include more than 15,000 residential units, 1.9 million square feet of office space, 350,000 square feet of retail, 250,000 square feet of hotel space, a Whole Foods Market and a 14-screen ShowPlace ICON theater.
