March 2, 2017- A Washington paper reports, “Capitol Crossing—the massive project rising over I-395 between Capitol Hill and Chinatown—has signed its first tenant, said its developer during a phone call Wednesday.

Jeffrey Sussman, president of Property Group Partners, tells Washingtonian that Capitol Crossing has partnered with restauranteur Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group. Meyer will open a location of his James Beard-winning Manhattan restaurant, Union Square Cafe, in the ground-floor retail space of 200 Massachusetts Ave., NW, when the building finishes next year. It will be the first Union Square Cafe to open outside New York. Meyer also operates Shake Shack.”

Meanwhile, Mr. Meyer has become very political. He was a big Hillary Clinton supporter. Is he going to run for mayor?
