555 12th Street, NW
Potentially big retail news from the Washington Business Journal:
“D.C. proper could be getting its first Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th outlet. The lower-cost version of the luxury retailer is getting close to a lease deal at 555 12th St. NW, the downtown office building formerly home to ESPN Zone, according to two sources with knowledge of the deal…Similarly situated retailer Nordstrom Rack is also getting close to a deal at the site, according to the sources.”
Back in Sept. 2013 The Post speculated that a Target could be taking over the former ESPN Zone space. In October we learned that Barnes & Noble would be closing at the end of the year at 12th and G St, NW. Updates when/if leases are signed at these spaces.
