Johnson Center West Side Renovation is now completed!The west side of the Johnson Center (JC) Atrium had been under renovation since March 2017 to upgrade the food court.
The entire space between and including Jorge’s to Apple Federal Credit Union was being completely remodeled to accommodate a new storefront layout with new restaurants, which is now completed: Garbanzo, Steak ‘n Shake, Star Ginger, and Blaze Pizza.The Chipotle brand is a separate addition to the JC food court and will be located in the former Jorge’s spot. Chipotle will be independently operated and is currently scheduled to open at the beginning of the Spring semester. Mason will be the second university to open a campus Chipotle.
Panera, Freshens, Express, and Starbucks remain open. Red Hot & Blue and IndAroma have moved across from Starbucks on the ground floor.
The aisle along the west side interior of the JC is widened, similar in width to the east side. Additionally, an outdoor patio has been constructed along the west side of the building for outside eating and socializing. New furniture for the west side patio is on order and should be delivered and installed in late November/early December. This patio runs the entire length of the JC.
Plans for Freshii
Freshii will be located in the new Petersons Building. Plans are currently under review for construction permits with an estimated opening in March.
