Ed. Note: BicycleSpace is currently popped up at 700 5th Street NW as of January 3rd, before moving to permanent space at 440 K St NW.
“We are excited to announce the signing of a lease for a new location in the up and coming Hecht Warehouse District. The repurposed industrial space will be at 1512 Okie Street NE, and feature over 4000 square feet of retail and service space. A summer 2015 opening is planned.
The new shop will join the dynamic and rapidly changing neighborhood and pair well with established neighbors like Open Studio DC, Atlas Brew Works, New Columbia Distillers, One Eight Distilling and Mom’s Organic Market – all less than a five minute walk away- while forming part of the foundation for the community that will rise outside our doors . The shop will be an easy ride from Capitol Hill, neighborhoods in NE, as well as from east of the river, and will be a convenient stopping point for commuters in Prince George’s county and beyond. We look forward to bringing great products, great service, and great community support for everyone living in and moving through the area.
“I am thrilled that BicycleSPACE is going to be part of this transformational Douglas Development project; from the rebirth of the abandoned space, to creating a walkable-bikeable community that is connected to the greater city, to serving the residents of the historic Trinidad and Ivy City neighborhoods, we can’t imagine a better place to meld the old & the new as our city continues to grow.” Cofounder Phil Koopman”
