The leasing brokers for Clyde’s Restaurant Group are Next Realty, led by George Galloway. Branding touches and design for Ebbitt House are being provided by Studio K Creative, led by Karen Herold, and architecture will be led by Griz Dwight at Grizform Design Architects.
“I have had a strong relationship with the Clyde’s Group dating back to the 1990s and have always felt there would be great synergies between both Comstock and Clyde’s as creators of iconic Northern Virginia real estate locations,” said Tim Steffan, COO of Comstock. “The addition of Ebbitt House to our already remarkable merchandising lineup further strengthens Reston Station as a ‘first thought’ dining and entertainment destination in Northern Virginia.”
