Construction is underway at the Solaire Social food hall and Prime Coffee & Bakery.
We reported in June that construction had finally begun at Solaire Social, the first of two food halls announced for downtown Silver Spring. Springfield, Va.-based contractor ADI Construction is building the 11-vendor food hall, curated by Chef Akhtar Nawab of Hospitality HQ.
Meanwhile, Prime Coffee & Bakery is also under construction. Earlier this year, we reported that the coffee shop would occupy an empty space on the ground floor of the Thayer & Spring apartments, next to the post office. According to plans, the outlet will seat 49 people. The coffee shop is a trade name for Dream Line International LLC, a coffee roaster and importer based in Laurel. It’s unclear from the documents if the coffee will be roasted on-site or elsewhere.
There is a budget of $500,000 for the build-out; a potential opening date has not been given. The Source will update as more information becomes available.
