Morton’s Steakhouse scion David Morton and his business partner, Scott Gidwitz, have signed a 29,000-square-foot lease at Arlington’s Rosslyn City Center, bringing a new venue for all-day dining, working and socializing at the office, retail and transit complex near the nation’s capital.

The new food and dining experience will anchor the $35 million redevelopment of Rosslyn City Center that American Real Estate Partners is undertaking at the 40-year-old mall above the Metro at 1700 North Moore Street.

When complete, Rosslyn City Center will include an 84,000-square-foot retail footprint.

“This fits perfectly with our vision for a place where people want to gather and spend work and leisure moments,” Paul Schulman, AREP’s principal and chief operating officer, told Commercial Observer. “And it will play a prominent role in a reimagined Rosslyn City Center that is also key to Rosslyn’s revitalization as an energized, vibrant neighborhood where residents, commuters and employees of major nearby companies want to be.”
