ICSC Spotlight: DSW takes over D.C., L St. Borders site gains a future



DCMud’s man at the International Council of Shopping Centers Convention survived that shopping center jungle with a couple new updates, both conspicuously involving clothing …

  •  DSW, the footwear retailer, plans to open three new stores in Washington, D.C. One will be in Columbia Heights, one in Friendship Heights and one on Connecticut Avenue. So anyone who has been stocking up on heels for the coming shoe drought can breathe easy.

  •  Following the trend of transforming ex-Borders into things that have absolutely no hope of raising the national literacy rate (see: the Hamilton), a large but as-of-yet unnamed clothing retailer will be taking over the old Borders site on L Street.

You mean COLUMBIA Heights, right?

Must be H&M... They seem to be snatching up former Borders and B&N stores all over the US lately.

My money is on the old Borders becoming a TJ Maxx, similar to the store at F & 13th Street.

DSW is taking over the Borders location on Wisconsin Avenue in Friendship Heights. That is according to a new "coming soon" sign in the window.
