Michaels Craft Store, T.J. Maxx Among Rumored Mall Tenants
Georgetown Park Mall has yet to announce any new tenants.
The Georgetown Park Mall continues to generate interest among larger retailers, but Vornado Realty Trust has yet to announce any new tenants. Rumored potential tenants include Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor, T.J. Maxx and Michaels, according to The Washington Post.
Bloomingdale's had previously expressed interest in opening a "Soho Concept" store in Georgetown prior to the mall's public auction several years ago that brought in Vornado Realty Trust and Angelo, Gordon & Co.
Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans told The Post that Bloomingdale's would not require a tax incentive to come to Georgetown.
Most of the shops on the mall's interior have been asked to vacate, leaving the space dim and quiet since most departed in late 2011, early 2012.
At the July 2011 Georgetown Advisory Neighborhood Commission meeting, representative for Vornado told commissioners that during conversations with several "high-end" retailers, a glazed facade to broadcast the store's presence was discussed.
The mall has been undergoing renovations in the retail space at the C&O Canal level, Wisconsin Avenue level, and M Street levels.
