Last week, Washingtonian pondered the question: What’s Under Dupont Circle?
The answer, as of now, is a lot of nothing. The space used to be an old streetcar/trolley tunnel. Then, it was reincarnated for a brief period as a food court.
Since 1997, it has been vacant. But, now, a new organization named the Arts Coalition for Dupont Underground, which is composed of several arts groups, wants to turn the space into a gallery. Today’s Washington Business Journal has more on the project.
According to the Journal, the group believes the space will need minimal investment; but it will require a new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.A proposal has been sent to the office of Neil Albert, deputy mayor for planning and economic development. A meeting is scheduled for Monday.
