Thanks to all who sent me emails about this development. Washington Business Journal writes:

Wholesale club Costco has signed a letter of intent to occupy a shopping center in the Fort Lincoln neighborhood of Northeast D.C., according to Councilman Kwame Brown, D-At large.

Fort Lincoln President Michelle Hagans has been looking for major retailers for the 42-acre site, bounded by New York Avenue, South Dakota Avenue and 33rd Place, near the entrance to the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, for more than a decade.

Hagans said she wants to have Costco — and Target — leases anchor a retail hub in a development once called Washington Gateway but which she is renaming The Shops at Dakota Crossing. She said other major retailers, such as Shoppers Food Warehouse, were still interested.

Minneapolis-based retailer Target has also been planning to enter the shopping center, and Brown said those plans could be finalized as early as this week.
