Last week a reader asked if Anthropologie was still coming to Penn Quarter. Work is progressing nicely at the soon to be retail space in 950 F St, NW:
A press release yesterday from Douglass Development mentioned that the Penn Quarter store is slated for a September opening. They also announced a new location for Old Town Alexandria:
Douglas Development just announced that upscale retailer Anthropologie has signed a lease for 10,500 square feet in the newly-acquired Douglas Development property at 610-612 King Street in Old Town, Alexandria, VA. Anthropologie will move into the former Hallmark store by the end of this year.
The popular clothing and home-furnishings store is no stranger to Douglas Development. This signing marks the second deal between the two in less than a year. In October 2010, Jemal leased 10,662 square feet to the retailer at its 950 F Street, NW property in Downtown DC, which is slated to open this September.
