NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., Feb. 19, 2021—With more than 2,500 residents, 14 million visitors annually, and 280,700+ square feet of flexible retail, it’s no surprise that National Harbor is a popular location for restaurants and retailers. The Waterfront District at National Harbor provides easy access and parking. Its wide promenades are lined with restaurants and retailers including national brands—Carhartt, Alex and Ani, Build-A-Bear Workshop and others. It has also become a location for unique and successful retail entrepreneurs including ZAAF, A Beautiful Closet, BrookieGirl and The Furlough Cheesecake (opened last August.)
National Harbor recently signed four additional restaurant/retailers, all opening spring or summer of 2021. New tenants include BurgerFi opening a 2,714 square foot fast casual restaurant this summer; Roll by Goodyear opening one of their new customer-centric tire locations in early spring in a 1,616 square foot space; Girlkin Lashes, opening a luxurious lash and brow salon in a 1,311 square foot space also in spring; and nationally known MahoganyBooks opening its second bookstore in a 1,408 square foot space with its books for, by or about the African diaspora.
“We are delighted to welcome these new tenants,” said Kimli Cross, vice president of leasing at National Harbor for Peterson Companies. “Each of them will add significantly to our current portfolio and will further enrich the customer experience at National Harbor for our residents and visitors.”
With its prime riverfront location and easy access to Washington, D.C.; Alexandria; Arlington and Baltimore, National Harbor’s location is unparalleled. The Waterfront District at National Harbor offers a unique experience for dining, shopping, entertainment, special events and water activities.
“National Harbor’s Waterfront District has rapidly become a major destination and exceptionally desirable location for retail,” explained Tony Summers, senior leasing representative at National Harbor for Peterson Companies.
“We know that National Harbor is a special place,” Cross added. “There is nothing like it in the country—proximity to the nation’s capital as well as its combination of sizable river frontage; notable easy interstate access; mix of retail, prime residential and Class-A office space—all part of a community that has been master-planned by one developer so that it’s architecturally cohesive and well thought through.”
