Where We Live: Mosaic District

The Mosaic District is a Town Center with a uniquely urban feel.  This is accomplished through a high WalkScore, ample parking, boutique shops, everyday and fine dining, and with some great niche stores that round out the neighborhood and ensure there’s always a new hidden gem to explore.

The Mosaic District has an 80 WalkScore. Most any errand can be accomplished within this community, partially due to the large Target that has groceries, a pharmacy, as well as typical big-box store goods.  While taking a short trip around Mosaic, you’ll find a barber, a butcher, a few gyms of different kinds, and a wine shop.  Free parking is plentiful, including car charging stations.  Mosaic is centered around Angelika Film Center.  The courtyard area in front of the theater is where you’ll see children playing and others enjoying the open space at all times of the day.

Mosaic has great options for shopping of all kinds.  For groceries you can visit Target or you can head to Mom’s Organic Market for healthy and locally grown foods.  My favorite place to get groceries though, is on Sunday mornings at the Farmer’s Market that takes place in the streets of Mosaic.  It’s a great place to get produce and local goods, but it’s also just a pleasant way to spend a morning.  The whole neighborhood and their dogs come down for their favorite vendors.

For shopping, you’ll find primarily local businesses as well as familiar brands, and plenty of boutique shops.  Some of my favorites are Great Gatherings, Scout and Molly, Anthropologie, and Lululemon.

Restaurants are where Mosaic really shines.  For a quick cup of coffee or a snack, Mom and Pop Coffee is a picturesque shop, frequented by HBC Group’s own Molly Patton. In the evening, their sister store Dolcezza is a great stop for some homemade Gelatto.  The list of restaurants is too great to go into detail into each so I’ll list some of my favorites. Jinya Ramen, Ted’s Bulletin, Sister’s Thai, and True Food Kitchen.  If you don’t have the pleasure of living in this community, you owe it to yourself to stop by for dinner!

In the last 180 days, 7 homes have sold in the Mosaic District, all of which are townhomes that range from $770’s- $900’s.  In 2021, The HBC Group represented the seller at 8323 Looking Glass Way which closed for $795,000.  In 2020, The HBC Group also represented the buyer of 2914 Penny Lane which sold for $805,000.  Most properties sell for list price or above as all are under $1M in this great community.
