SolidCore opened their first DC location in the former Video King space here back in 2013.
Thanks to a reader for passing on from Solidcore:
“I have some news to share with you today. As you all know, we have been offering limited class times at our ADMO studio in January and now in February. This is due to a dispute between us and our landlord over the noise the studio creates in 6 of the residential units above us, making them unlivable/un-rentable. Because the building is so old and the space is so small, there is nothing that can be done to fully soundproof the space. After lengthy legal negotiations with our LL, we will be closing our current ADMO location on Friday, February 27th. This is extremely bittersweet for us — ADMO was our first location and is in a neighborhood we hold near and dear to our hearts…it is also the neighborhood I live in. While we wish the LL would have been more diligent before we signed our lease, we are choosing to look at this as a little road bump in our long journey to build a special community that helps people become the strongest version of themselves.
A couple pieces of good news: We currently have four other studios in DC (Shaw, Mt. Vernon and Cathedral Commons)/VA (Ballston) and our Old Town location is opening on March 2nd. Shaw and Cathedral are less than 2 miles from the ADMO studio in either direction and we hope you can make one of these studios work for you as a temporary solution. We are actively looking for space in the ADMO area and have started lease negotiations with a new building – unfortunately, this space would not be ready until May, but it would/will be bigger and nicer and within blocks of the old location.
We realize some of you are going to have questions about your accounts and we will be working with you to make sure you are happy – extending packages, etc. Meg is your girl for any questions you have and you can email her at [email protected]
We have big plans to continue to grow in the DC/MD/VA area, as well as outside the region. The ADMO neighborhood is where we got our start and for that, we are grateful. We also want to be sure you know how special you are to our community and we thank you for that.”
