About The Lobby Project

The Lobby Project is an initiative of the NoMa Business Improvement District in partnership with the DC Office of Planning’s Temporary Urbanism program. Together, we created a vibrant destination where people socialize and work. For two years now, the NoMa BID has hosted art openings through a partnership with Washington Project for the Arts, as well as the Nerds in NoMa lectures. We also want to thank Polinger Shannon and Luchs and Principal Real Estate Investors.
