French furniture manufacturer Ligne Roset will open a 2,749 SF store in one of District Square's corner locations. Boutique clothing, jewelry and home decor concept A Beautiful Closet will open a 1,045 SF store in District Square. The shopping plaza's other three new additions include chocolate-maker Harper Macaw, BLINK Optical and Blush Med Skincare.
The Wharf's developers also announced three new retailers outside of District Square. Patrick's Fine Linens & Home Decor will open an 899 SF store on Water Street facing the waterfront. Restaurateur Med Lahlou will open a 1,980 SF pizzeria on Pearl Street, The Wharf's entertainment strip. A 560 SF dry cleaning and laundry shop, The Press, will open on Maine Avenue.
The new additions bolster The Wharf's shopping scene. Its previously announced soft-goods retailers include District Hardware and Bike, Cordial Craft Wine Beer and Spirits, Bella Moda Spa and CVS. It is also preparing to open several new restaurant concepts from well-known chefs such as Fabio and Maria Trabocchi, Mike Isabella, Jamie Leeds and Kwame Onwuachi.
