POW!WOW! Murals Around NoMa


POW! WOW!, an international art movement that celebrates culture, music and art in cities around the world landed in NoMa from May 20-30. We had a wonderful time at the Opening Celebration and at both Happy Hour Mural Tours! Thanks to everyone who came out to tour with us.

POW! WOW! brings talented local and international artists together in partnerships with community members that enrich, beautify and enliven neighborhoods. Almost 20 extraordinarily talented muralists from DC and around the world created original masterpieces as part of this year’s POW! WOW! 

The festival might be over, but the murals live on! Check out the mural pictured above (at 52 O Street NW) and all of the others around the NoMa neighborhood. If you can't make it around to see the art work in person, check out some pictures from the festival here. Also, take a look at these interviews with POW!WOW! creator Kelly Towles on WUSA9 and BBC

POW! WOW! is sponsored by the NoMa BID and neighborhood real estate developers KettlerMRP Realty and Skanska. For more information on POW! WOW!, click here.

Refined concept for 3rd & L Park shared

At the June 11th NoMa Parks Community Conversation, Lee and Associates shared a refined concept for the future park at 3rd and L Streets NE. The park features a fenced dog park, children’s play structure, and seating. Meeting attendees had an opportunity to get a taste for the size of the park by walking through a life-size chalk drawing at NoMa Junction, and then go on a tour of the future park site for further details with Lee and Associates. If you were unable to attend the meeting, you can view the refined concept and share your thoughts at

A New Development on L Street NE

J Street Development Co. submitted a PUD for a 64 unit residential building to the Zoning Commission on June 7th.The building will be located at the corner of Congress Street, NE and L Street, NE. It will include 3,700 SF of ground floor retail with possible uses contemplated including an expansion of Union Kitchen, urgent care, or a neighborhood hardware store.

NoMa by the Numbers

NoMa BID’s population is projected to double in the next five years based on the development pipeline. The current residential population of the BID is around 6,300 and is projected to exceed 13,000 by 2020.  This would put the BID’s residential density at around 35,000 people per square mile by 2020. At full build out, based on current development plans, the BID will have approximately 22,500 residents or roughly 60,000 residents per square mile. This density is comparable to the southern section of Logan Circle, which is currently the densest residential area in the District of Columbia.
