District Crossfit NW at 635 New York Ave NW will close its doors after its final WOD (workout of the day) tonight. Their landlord, Douglas Development, is intent on moving forward with redeveloping the block.
Please join us on the evening of Tuesday, November 26 for the final WOD at District CrossFit NW. As you all know DCFNW will unfortunately be closing in November, but we can’t send the ole’ girl out without a bang. Join us for a workout (and of course some refreshments) to celebrate the best damn gym this city has ever seen. ’The Final WOD’ will actually be any of the regularly scheduled Tuesday evening classes (5:30, 6:30 & 7:30), so pick the class of your liking and stick around to have a drink and trade a few stories.
District Crossfit opened in 2010 at 624 New York Ave NW. One year later they were displaced by the AAMC headquarters development and choose to relocate across the street to a much bigger space at 635 New York Ave. The membership of the gym rapidly grew and they responded by adding a second 10,000SF location at 1525 Half Street SW.
In June 2012 there were rumblings that Douglas Development wanted to redevelop Square 450 and again displace our local crossfit gym. While those rumors didn’t turn into action immediately they did eventually come to head these last four months leading the gym to target November 26th as its final day of operation.
Though 635 NY Ave will be closing we are currently in negotiations with landlords to open in the same area. We’re looking at places in Chinatown, Shaw and Mass Ave among other. We love this area and rest assured we are doing everything within our power to keep the magic of DCF NW. In the meantime we’re planning on expanding the hours at the swanky DCF SW location once NW closes; and adding a bunch of cool new opportunities until we get everything settled in NW. We will certainly announce any and all details regarding progress on our new location as they become available.
We’ve loved working and training you guys in the time since we opened our humble little auto garage turned super-gym.
