From a press release:

“The NoMa Parks Foundation, recently acquired a parcel at Third and L Street, NE that will be developed into NoMa’s first park. The acquisition adds to the great community amenities in NoMa and makes good on the promise of beautiful public spaces for the neighborhood. The lot is the first acquisition for the NoMa Parks Foundation and will enable the creation of a roughly 8,000 square foot park. The land is titled to the District of Columbia government.

The NoMa Parks Foundation invites community members and park enthusiasts to the second NoMa Parks Community Conversation to discuss plans for NoMa Parks and public spaces. This community meeting will take place on November 19, 2015 at 6:30 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn located at 1225 First Street, NE. Representatives from D.C.’s Department of Parks and Recreation and other government partners will attend. A community meeting to discuss the Third and L Street, NE lot will be held soon thereafter. For more information and to RSVP for the November 19th Community Conversation, please visit”

  • It is nice the District can commit $50M for NoMa to use for parks and public spaces but it would be great if it could give a fraction of that to clean up Georgia Avenue and/or N. Capitol. Even more so throw a few dollars the way of our hard working police officers!

    • I go back and forth to be honest. Green space is nice and needed, especially in a more dense area like NoMA. But for $50M, they could have purchased the the storefronts all along North Capitol between NY and FL Aves and done something with them instead. Maybe I’m just really longing for someone to buy and close the liquor stores along that stretch and clean up that area a bit. I think with the pending development on the East side of North Capitol south of NY Ave, maybe it’ll spur change along North Capitol. I don’t know what the solution is, but something needs to happen. Closing Ben’s Liquors down would be a nice start.

    • The District paid approx $3M for the lot from the $50M approved for park space several years ago.

    • And BTW, there is barely a square foot of land left on NoMA for park space.
