Leasing Merriweather

Neighborhood cafe and bookstore Busboys and Poets is opening its largest location yet in Merriweather, venturing out of the D.C. area for the first time. Three other restaurant concepts with D.C., Northern Virginia and Hanover ties were also revealed in October. Next up, Howard Hughes will be announcing concepts that Baltimore locals will recognize, said Ray Schupp, a broker and principal at H&R Retail who is heading up leasing for the project.
