7th and Pennsylvania Ave, SE
Last week we marveled at the old Hine School transformation.
From a press release:
“The cold-press craze will soon touch down in Eastern Market. Stanton Development and EastBanc, Inc. announced today that DC’s popular fresh-pressed juicery, JRINK, has signed a five-year lease and will open a 471-square-foot specialty shop at 750 C Street, SE. Founded by two former Wall Street women, JRINK makes being healthy, easy, with numerous pop-up shops inside fitness studios across the DC metropolitan area. This is JRINK’s first leased standalone storefront property and will feature its entire assortment of locally-sourced nutritious beverages, as well as new made-to-order items such as smoothies, toasts, and bowls. JRINK is known throughout the national capital region as conveniently delivering farm-to-bottle-to-fridge healthy cold-pressed juices, a method of juicing that puts 30 percent more juice in each bottle with 40 percent more nutrients with no added sugars, preservatives or processing. JRINK is slated to open mid-September at Eastern Market and its new Capitol Hill location will be the company’s flagship site.
“We’re thrilled to bring JRINK to Capitol Hill, where there are so many hardworking young professionals and families,” says Shizu Okusa, Jrink co-founder and chief juice officer. “As former investment bankers, we know how hard it is to stay healthy, when busy, so we are enthused to bring our juices to the Eastern Market area.”
The JRINK agreement completes the development team’s commitment to lease 1,000 square feet of space to local small retailers, building on the previously signed five-year lease agreement with home goods retailer and Flea Market veteran Antiochia. The new storefronts in the project’s North Building will also include five-year lease agreements with ice cream and dairy shop Trickling Springs Creamery, as well as a 10-year lease agreement with District Veterinary Hospital.
“The new collection of retailers at Eastern Market fulfills the development team’s desire to secure small, locally-owned businesses,” says Anthony Lanier, president of EastBanc. “These storefronts will offer residents and neighbors alike lifestyle conveniences and accessibility to everyday comforts.”
Designed by architects Weinstein Studio, Esocoff & Associates and landscape architect Oehme, van Sweden & Associates, the Eastbanc/Stanton Hine School is a new mixed-use development including a 156,000-square-foot office building, 162 apartment residences that include 46 units of affordable housing and 116 market-rate residential units, and 60,000 square feet of specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants with an emphasis of locally-owned retail. A stone-paved, tree-lined newly opened C Street (connecting 7th and 8th Streets) that realizes the L’Enfant Plan will provide a new home for the popular Eastern Market Flea Markets on weekends. The Hine Redevelopment Project’s commitment to sustainability includes Gold and Silver LEED Certified designs, green roofs, car-sharing and underground bike racks and showers.”
