In the same building, the Art of SpYn will open an indoor cycling and yoga studio, its first in the city, later this year.

The J. Crew store is expected to open in August. J. Crew currently operates stores in Bethesda, Columbia, Georgetown, Pentagon City, Fairfax, Leesburg, Tysons Corner, Reston and Woodbridge.

J. Crew adds to a growing number of clothing retailers to open in the eastern end of Washington’s downtown despite the slow economy, many of them courtesy of Douglas, the family-owned development firm led by Douglas Jemal. Douglas Development recently also inked Anthropologie to an F Street lease and also brought Forever 21, Guess, H&M and Zara to the neighborhood.

Norman Jemal, Douglas Development principal and son of Douglas Jemal, called J. Crew “one of America’s most recognized and iconic fashion brands” and said “their interest in locating here illustrates the critical mass that we are achieving in Downtown D.C.”
