Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc., announced plans to open a Nordstrom Rack in downtown Washington, D.C. at the 1800 L Street, NW building. The approximately 35,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in spring 2013.

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., carrying on-trend merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com at 50 to 60 percent off original Nordstrom prices. Nordstrom Rack also offers a wide selection of apparel, accessories and shoes from many of the brands carried in Nordstrom stores. These items are purchased specially for Nordstrom Rack, with most at savings of 30 to 70 percent off.

Nordstrom operates several full-line and Rack stores in the greater D.C. area. "We're excited to have the opportunity to bring a Nordstrom Rack to downtown Washington, D.C. with our new location at 1800 L," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We want to be a part of compelling locations across the country and are looking forward to getting our doors open to more conveniently serve our customers in Northwest D.C."

The new Nordstrom Rack will be centrally located in Northwest D.C. on the corner of 18th Street and L Street, which sits one block off Connecticut Avenue with close proximity to Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle, K Street, the White House and The Mall. Eighteen Hundred L Street (1800 L) is part of the Eighteen Hundred and One K (1801 K) Street mixed-use development containing 590,000 square-feet of office space and 75,000 square-feet of retail space.

The new one-level Rack store will occupy the street level of the former Borders book store and will join a vibrant business, retail and restaurant scene. Nearby stores include Brooks Brothers, Burberry, and Thomas Pink. Somerset Partners LLC owns and manages the 1800 L Street building.

"We're thrilled to be partnering with Nordstrom Rack to bring the best in off-price retail to downtown D.C.," said Gregory Knoop, Somerset's chief operating officer. "With an amazing selection of brand-name merchandise at great prices, we think the 1800 L Nordstrom Rack store is going to be a favorite destination for Washingtonians and tourists alike."
