Future home of DSW on Irving St, NW in DC USA
Back in March 2011 we first heard that a DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) was coming to DC USA in Columbia Heights. I was having a tough time visualizing where it would be located. So last week I finally got a tour from DC USA’s Director of Building Operations, David Stein. And holy cow, this is gonna be a way bigger deal than I thought. So it turns out there is going to be a whole second wing called the Irving Street wing which will have it’s own entrance and lobby accessible, naturally, on Irving St, NW just west of 14th Street:
And DSW will occupy 22,000 square feet over the entire second floor. If construction goes according to schedule they will be open in July/August.
Future location of escalator to 2nd floor and DSW
The first floor will consist of 2 more retail tenants. There have been lots of discussions though both leases are still available. I’ll be sure to announce as soon as new tenants are found. In the meantime get ready for the opening of the Irving Street wing featuring DSW this summer.
