JBG SMITH Properties (NYSE: JBGS), a leading owner and developer of high-quality, mixed use properties in the Washington, DC market, is thrilled to announce that Mission, a popular Mexican bar and eatery, will open this summer in the Capitol Riverfront District in Southeast Washington. Mission will be owned by Fritz Brogan and Reed Landry of the Mission Group, and will build on the group’s successful track record with Mission-Dupont and Hawthorne on U Street. Mission will open in the summer of 2018 in the flagship retail space of JBG SMITH’S new 1221 Van Street multi-family project, located steps from the main entrance to Nationals Park and four blocks from DC United’s new stadium at Audi Field.
“Fritz and I are beyond excited to be opening in Capitol Riverfront,” said Reed Landry, co-managing partner of The Mission Group. “We’ve been eager to find a space that combines the best elements of Mission and Hawthorne with flexibility to do everything — happy hour, brunch, dining and socializing, private events and a late-night bar scene. Mission at Capitol Riverfront will allow us to provide all of these options in an incredible space right next to the ballpark.”
