By PRESS OFFICER
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (July 14, 2021)—National Harbor welcomes seven new retail tenants in the last three months. Roll by Goodyear (128 Waterfront St.) has opened one of its new customer-centric tire locations in a 1,616 square foot space; Girlkin Lashes (181 American Way) opened its luxurious lash and brow salon in a 1,311 square foot space; nationally known MahoganyBooks (121 American Way) has opened its first street-level bookstore and its second location in a 1,408 square foot space with its books for, by or about the African diaspora. Black Hair Experience (151 St. George Blvd.,) opened last month and features 22,629 square feet of a unique concept with Instagramable spaces that connect visitors to moments from their childhood and to history.
Additional new tenants include Community Love (169 American Way), a 2,873 square foot creative retail clothing brand based on key community principles. Prince George’s Arts & Humanities Council (162 Waterfront St.) has a 6,175 square foot space where local artists sell their wares, workshop classes, and live music on the weekends. Locally known artist Josue Martinez opened his second Corinto Gallery in a 1,118 square foot space store at National Harbor. Martinez is best known for Gangster George and his National Cherry Blossom Festival’s Art in Bloom chair. His original Corinto Gallery is in Washington, D.C.
“Retail activity at National Harbor has been robust over the past year,” said Kimli Cross, vice president of leasing at National Harbor for Peterson Companies (owners and managers of the property.) “Our portfolio of retail and restaurants has continued to increase and the mix will further enrich the customer experience for our residents and visitors.”
With more than 2,500 residents, 28 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, Brackish Waters, BrookieGirl, Messy Treatz and The Furlough Cheesecake.
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.
“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 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.”
