Coastal Flats

As Great American Restaurants’ newest restaurant concept, the Coastal Flats restaurants serve classic coastal favorites in a beach house atmosphere. For this repeat client, Forrester built-out a 10,600 SF restaurant to house the chain’s third location in the Downtown Crown development in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Construction included the interior fit-out of a core and shell mixed-use commercial and retail space. The completed restaurant includes a full service kitchen, dining area and an outdoor patio, as well as high-end finishes such as exposed structural wood trusses, mahogany millwork, custom glass work, terrazzo flooring and stone tops.
