Future site of REI
Looks like REI, that fantastic but oh, so expensive purveyor of sporting goods based out of Seattle, is coming to DC in the current Uline Arena in NoMa.
‘The former Washington Coliseum, which has sat in disrepair and neglect for decades and has most recently served as parking lot and backdrop for a play about the old neighborhood, was acquired by Douglas Development in 2004. At last night’s ANC 6C Planning, Zoning and Environment committee meeting, the development company announced that REI will anchor the ground floor of the building.’
With a planned movie theater, a Whole Foods, the expansion of the Union Market area and more let the renaissance of NoMa begin.
