Two more retailers have signed on at The Yards, D.C.’s new waterfront neighborhood. Forest City Washington, the project’s master developer, recently revealed that Pacers Running, a local runners resource store, and Philz Coffee, a growing San Francisco-based coffee shop, will both open new locations in the coming months.

Pacers’ new location will be the footwear provider’s sixth shop in the District. It will open in October, in the Boilermaker Shops at 300 Tingey St. SE.

The Boilermaker Shops is part of the retail heart of The Yards. It opened in 2012, bringing 33,540 square feet of retail space and 11,000 square feet of office space to the area. The new Pacers shop will join other tenants such as Bluejacket Brewery, Buzz Bakery, 100 Montaditos, Unleashed by Petco, Nando’s Peri-Peri, Wells Dry Cleaners, Willie’s Brew and Que, and Hugh & Crye. Pacer’s lease will bring the retail component of the Boilermaker Shops to full occupancy.

Philz Coffee said that the new Yards shop is part of the company’s plan to establish multiple locations in the D.C. metro area, marking the coffee shop’s first expansion outside of California. The retailer will occupy 2,400 square feet of space in the new, 327-unit Arris apartment building, across the street from the Boilermaker Shops. The new store is scheduled to open in early spring 2016.
