White Flint Mall logs another win to proceed

We’ve kept you updated on the proceedings between Lord & Taylor and White Flint Mall in the former’s attempt to halt the property’s redevelopment.  Recently, we learned that Dave & Busters has also sued the mall to avoid having to move.

Today, Washington Business Journal reports that the US District Court for our area has ruled in favor of the Mall in this latest lawsuit.  Apparently, when Dave & Busters initially signed their lease with White Flint Mall, they agreed to not open any other locations within a certain radius.  White Flint Mall countered that Dave & Busters had violated this term of the lease when their Arundel Mills Mall location opened back in 2006.  The court agreed with the latter argument and has thrown out several counts of Dave & Busters’ original lawsuit.  The same judge is hearing both the Lord & Taylor and the Dave & Busters matters.

I hope Dave & Busters will look to relocate elsewhere in the Maryland suburbs. Granted, they’re going to be bitter about being essentially kicked out of the mall. And I don’t know what potential space would be available for them in the next couple of years. (Anyone have ideas?)

Maybe they’ll move to the Virginia suburbs instead, or just decide not to replace its loss in the DC area. That would be unfortunate. That said, this is a big step closer to seeing the underutilized mall and sea of surface parking redeveloped.
