Dupont Underground is an ambitious project that will bring life to 75,000 square feet of abandoned space beneath Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. By reclaiming this ideally sited piece of subterranean infrastructure — a trolley station last used as such in the early 1960s — we seek to establish a world-class center for arts, design, and innovative entrepreneurship. Powered by creative pursuits and social networks, this former transit space at the head of a key urban axis will serve as a civic focal point for Washington.
In July 2010, the Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground submitted a proposal in response to an RFP from the D.C. Deputy Mayor for Planning & Economic Development calling for innovative uses for this historic location. We are now in the process of working with the city to secure a lease for the space. Stay tuned.
