(Updated 3/11) If you’ve been around Old Town North, you know the Perfect Pita in question.
It sits at 951 N. Fairfax Street street, but it’s perhaps better known as the franchise location situated in a tiny standalone space. At an Urban Design Advisory Committee meeting yesterday (Wednesday), the committee endorsed plans for The Perfect Pita to expand the building and upscale its operations.
Architect John Savage, who designed the building in 1985, discussed a bit of history for the building presented plans for an upgrade to the site that could expand operations for The Perfect Pita.
Savage said in 1986, a branch bank was built on the site in the current building’s footprint, but it was not successful and both building and land were sold to The Perfect Pita.
The location has been very successful, and now The Perfect Pita is looking to expand operations to include a new kitchen, on-site eating areas and additional bathrooms. Savage also said the new upgrade should also give more circulation inside the famously cramped building and have more display cases for food.
The new plans also include a new two-story outdoor seating area with the goal of having outdoor seating for 40 guests.
As part of the development, the owners are also offering to work with Alexandria Archaeology to develop historic interpretative signs detailing neighborhood history.
