According to this press release, Leica has selected the location for the next Washington DC store:

Casual French eatery Le Pain Quotidien and exclusive retailer of photographic equipment Leica Camera, Inc. will soon fill the last available retail bays at 975 F Street, NW, in DC's East End. Akridge and Seaton Benkowski & Partners today announced the two 10-year leases that will bring their Carroll Square development to 100 percent occupancy this year. Both new retailers have already begun build-out on this prominent corner of the historic F Street shopping district.

The Leica Camera space is also expected to open before the end of this year, and will include a product showroom, image gallery, and a studio where customers will have the opportunity to try out the company's finest cameras. The 1,837 square foot boutique will be Leica's first stand-alone store in the country, although the product line has been preferred by White House photographers and other prominent photojournalists for decades. Carroll Square's proximity to the National Press Club at Fourteenth and F Streets was part of the building's appeal as a retail location.
