Health-focused chain among retailers, restaurants opening at renovated Ballston Mall
South Block Juice opened its ninth store in Arlington, Va. at Ballston Quarter March 25. The new South Block Ballston unit is a compact design within a main entryway off of Wilson Boulevard into Ballston Quarter. South Block is a health-focused beverage and acai-bowl chain that has its roots in Washington, D.C.. The emerging chain was founded 15 years ago by Amir Mostafavi, also its current CEO. A new Rosslyn unit will open this summer, according to an email from Mostafavi, adding to store locations that include Old Town, Alexandria and Clarendon in Arlington.
