Bad news for fashionistas: Bloomingdale’s won’t be coming to Georgetown after all

Last year, the Voice got excited by the prospect of Bloomingdale’s setting up shop in the Shops at Georgetown Park on M Street, but now it looks like it’s not to be: the department store has pulled out of the project, according to a recent article in the Georgetown Current [PDF].

According to the Current, Bloomingdale’s—which was going to be the main attraction in a revamped Georgetown Park complex—backed out because of on-going litigation over the ownership of the development:

A Bloomingdale’s spokesperson declined to comment on the change, but an attorney for Western Development, which owns the retail-residential complex, confirmed the news.

“It is our understanding that given this litigation, Bloomingdale’s will not be proceeding as the anchor tenant,” said attorney Scott Morrison.
