ALEXANDRIA, VA. — A new development coming to Alexandria's Parker Grey neighborhood this summer will include a taco shop, fitness studio and a juice and espresso bar.

Avanti Holdings has announced the Madison Collective development at 1008 Madison Street should open in the summer. Chop Shop Taco, Marlowe Ink, The Waiting Room, Grateful Kitchen Co, and Zweet Sport.

Avanti principal Teddy Kim, an Alexandria native, is fulfilling a longtime vision of bringing more local businesses to the neighborhoods around King Street. The space was previously a used car lot and automobile chop shop.

Chop Shop Taco will be an ode to the automobile chop shop the building formerly housed. The shop will offer varieties of tacos, tortas and snacks. The restaurant is a partnership between Avanti Holdings and Chef Ed McIntosh, who most recently opened Tortilladora in DC.

Other parts of the development include the Marlowe Ink tattoo parlor, Zweet Sport cycling studio and personal training space, a European-style juice and espresso bar at Grateful Kitchen Co. and a funky refurbished warehouse waiting area and event space called The Waiting Room.
