WASHINGTON, DC-Rosenthal Properties, LLC has inked eight retail leases in Q1 totaling 34,510 square feet. In addition, the company has a robust pipeline for Q2, says director of Leasing Billy Orlove—including some light industrial properties, it believes it will ink between 50,000 square feet to 100,000 square feet of deals in Q2, many of which will be retail.

For that reason, DC’s retail market cannot be said to be a definitive “tenant’s market” or “landlord’s market”. Rather, it is very much a case-by-case basis depending on the location.
