Fort Lincoln Retail Updates:
TGI Fridays “New Upscale Concept ”
These stores would join Dicks Sporting Goods, Marshalls, 5 Below, & Petsmart which are slated to open within the next 12 months. Some residents were expecting a healthier restaurant anchor or more of a craft or specialty concept in lieu of TGI Fridays. There was also the discussion of Panera Bread and a dry cleaners that was proposed by residents. The response was that there were no negotiations with a dry cleaners at this time and nothing formalized with Panera Bread. What are your thoughts on the upcoming retail options?
Arboretum Community Retail Updates:
Just a 5 minute drive away WBJ posted an update on the New City DC Development by Douglas Development Corp. Its dramatic architectural aesthetic will transform the intersection of N.Y.

There will be more information on New City DC in the March ANC 5C Meeting.
