District Crossfit was hoping to secure a lease at 459 I Street NW back in January. Terms could not be agreed upon and the gym shifted it’s focus to another neighborhood property and opened this past weekend at 624 New York Avenue NW.
It would now appear that retail is still on the way at the vacant Eye Street property. The Mount Vernon Triangle CID posted a notice instructing a homeless individual to remove items stacked up along the front of the property as a merchant is getting set to occupy the space. Rumor is that the future tenant may be a bike shop (Update: this has been confirmed as true).
