Burberry Likely to Open in CityCenter

The luxury brand could swap its downtown digs for space in the up-and-coming development.

More rumors are swirling this week around the soon-to-open CityCenter: Burberry is predicted to snag one of the open spots.

The luxe British retailer has lived at its current Connecticut Avenue location for nearly three decades, but recently the owner of the building, J Street Companies, listed the “iconic” space for lease beginning June 2014. According to Washington Business Journal, there’s been no indication that Burberry has expressed interest in renewing said lease, but there has been chatter between private brokers that the store is headed CityCenter’s way.

So what does this tell us about the largely quiet project? That alongside Kate Spade and Tumi—the only confirmed retailers thus far—the entire development is leaning increasingly luxurious. The hush surrounding the massive undertaking has us all the more intrigued. What’s coming next? Could it be that Armani store on New York Avenue? (According to a rendering of the center’s hotel, it might be.) Stay tuned for more as information becomes available.
