635 New York Ave, NW
From District Crossfit:
“As many of you have probably heard by now, thanks to the Washingtonian, we are very happy to announce that District CrossFit will be opening a new location in the Southwest Waterfront. The new gym will be located on 1525 Half Street SW in eyeshot of the National’s Ballpark.
The new space will be 10,000 square feet. To put that in perspective, our New York Ave. location is just shy of 3,500 square feet.
Barring any major setbacks, we plan on opening the doors on September 1st of this year.”
“Unfortunately we also have some sad news:
Potentially as soon as November 1st, 2012; we will be forced to close our doors at 635 New York Ave. While planning a new space (even back while we were at 624 NY Ave) we have always had every intention of keeping two locations up and running; Andrew even moved to the City Vista apartments 3 weeks ago in anticipation of DCF being in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood for a long time. However, a few days ago we received notice from our landlord that they intend to re-develop this block with a large office building. We are hoping to negotiate our way into a few more months at 635 but unfortunately our time here is more limited than we want. Seeing as DCF was born on NY Ave this news is absolutely heartbreaking to us. We’ve tried (and continue to try) to fight for every extra day we can.”
