National Harbor lands BurgerFi, other new retail tenants

WASHINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL – Retail leasing at National Harbor is picking up even as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to hurt retail and restaurant industries.

National Harbor developer Peterson Cos. has signed on four new retail tenants recently, including fast-casual restaurant BurgerFi, retailer Roll by Goodyear and eyelash and eyebrow-focused salon Girlkin Lashes.

They’ll join Black-owned bookstore MahoganyBooks, whose forthcoming location at National Harbor was first reported by the Washington Business Journal’s Emily Van Zandt earlier in February.

Here are the details on the new leases:

BurgerFi: 2,714 square feet at 161 Fleet St., previously a dry cleaners

Roll by Goodyear: 1,616 square feet at 128 Waterfront St., formerly a cupcake and sweets shop

Girlkin Lashes: 1,311 square feet at 181 American Way, previously a designer goods consignment shop

MahoganyBooks: 1,408 square feet at 121 American Way, formerly a Life is Good apparel shop

The MahoganyBooks location will be the bookstore’s second, and dwarf the size of the Anacostia original. As for the lash salon, Girlkin already has three locations — one in D.C. and two others in Pikesville and Westminster, Maryland.

National Harbor will be the fifth location for BurgerFi in the region. The Florida-based burger chain, which serves burgers and fries, chicken sandwiches and hot dogs, among other items, has locations in Silver Spring, North Bethesda, Woodbridge and Leesburg.
