(Note: dcist picked up the story first from WBJ.) Is Crate & Barrel thinking about opening one of its CB2 stores in Borderstan at 14th and R NW where the Central Union Mission is located (and supposedly moving to 65 Massachusetts Avenue NW)?
Maybe… possibly… we’ll see. According to the weekly Washington Business Journal:
Furniture retailer Crate & Barrel is looking for space to bring its CB2 store to D.C., according to a source familiar with the deal. CB2, which is aimed at a younger and more urban market than Crate & Barrel, is considering taking space along the 14th Street NW corridor in a planned office-retail project at 1350 R St. NW. The project is being developed by Jeffrey Schonberger, principal at Alturas Real Estate Interests LLC.
