A local restaurateur is planning to open its second location at the Shops at Penn Branch redevelopment, adding a highly desired new amenity to the Southeast D.C. neighborhood. Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners Director of Investments Anthony Startt told Bisnow that café and restaurant "The Highlands" signed on for a 1,900 square feet at the project. Rappaport brokered the deal. The developer also landed nonprofit KBEC Group for a 2,600 square feet lease and a District agency for 4,700 square feet on the second-floor office space, he said. The property has around 16,000 square feet of total office space, and he expects another deal to close soon.
