Golden Triangle Gets New Retail
Yesterday, we held up traffic to snap the locations whereThe Golden Triangle will be getting some fresh new retailers.First up: 1800 L St, which will be a new Nordstrom Rack this spring (and we first reported last June). Rappaport Co's Jim Farrell (who repped owner Somerset Partners with colleagues Mike Howard, Melissa Webb, and Bill Dickinson) tells us the deal speaks highly of the Golden Triangle's retail demand, and Nordstrom Rack's high-quality, low-price apparel should be a big hit with downtown office workers. H&R Retail's David Ward repped the tenant.
We mosied up the street and blocked the intersection of Connecticut and N to snap Brookfield's 1250 Connecticut, where steakhouse STK has signed a 9,000 SF lease, with a move-in expected by year's end. Brookfield's Greg Meyer tells us his firm sought out STK for the space (formerly occupied by Casa Nonna) after seeing its success in another company asset: NYC's Grace Building.STK joins a list of other high-quality restaurants (think BLT, Oya, Zaytinya, Marcel's) complementing Brookfield's Class-A downtown office properties.
