According to the Washington Post, D.C.'s second Apple Store might appear in the huge CityCenterDC development located near Chinatown and the Washington Convention Center. Despite the rumors, Apple is keeping quiet:

Apple isn’t talking either. “We haven’t made any announcements about a store in Washington” said spokeswoman Amy Bessette.

The thinking, however, is that either Hines has locked up Apple or feels good enough about the possibility that it was willing to go ahead with carving out a prominent space. Retail brokers offering storefronts nearby have already begun plotting how to take advantage of the huge foot traffic that an Apple store is likely to bring to the intersection.

This was initially rumored around the end of 2011, but with CityCenterDC almost completed, the guessing game will soon be over. D.C.'s first Apple Store opened in Georgetown in June 2010.
