From a press release:

“Trammell Crow Company (TCC), along with Fort Lincoln New Town Corporation and CSG Urban Partners, announce Starbucks, Five Below, Vitamin Shoppe, Panda Express, and T-Mobile have signed long term leases at The Shops at Dakota Crossing [South Dakota Ave NE and 33rd St NE], a 430,000-square-foot retail center located in NE Washington, D.C. All stores plan to open in early 2017. These new leases bring the center to nearly 90 percent leased.

“We are very pleased to see the Shops at Dakota Crossing continues to attract high quality, national retailers that add to the best-in-class roster of tenants already operating in the center and provide the kind of services the residents of Ward 5 want and deserve,“ said Adam Weers, Principal within TCC’s MidAtlantic Business Unit.

“Fort Lincoln has become one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the District and this impressive set of new tenants in the Center proves that it has also become one of the District’s premier retail destinations,” added Michele V. Hagans, President and CEO of Fort Lincoln New Town Corporation.

The retail center is anchored by Costco, Lowe’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods, which are currently open, and Marshall’s and PetSmart, which will open this fall.

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if anyone had any updates on the opening date for the new Dick’s Sporting Goods at Dakota Crossing. The parking lot is now set and they have sectioned it off to divide it from ongoing construction. There are huge signs saying Opening Soon, but I can’t find a date…”

They started hiring sales associates for this location on July 25th so it’s gotta be real soon! Standby.

“It looks like they are breaking ground for the Lowe’s at The Shops at Dakota Crossing. They’ve actually made quite a bit of headway, as the ground has been completely leveled, and it was a bit bumpy and bushy a month ago. You can see the Costco in the background. There were lots of trucks and large crane type machines around, as well as about 20 hardhats on a lunch break. This will be the first Lowe’s in DC and the second big box home improvements store.”
