NoMa Junction @ Storey Park
NoMa Junction @ Storey Park presents the largest work of public art in the city. The transformation of this 70,000 SF lot began with 200 gallons of white primer, and finished with more than 500 cans of spray paint. Today, a parking lot in the NoMa neighborhood has been brightened and transformed with more than 14,000 SF of murals, on the walls and on the ground, created by 55 East Coast artists.
The NoMa BID partnered with hip-hop nonprofit Words, Beats & Life to make the art happen. Rather than painting only on the walls, the artists also covered a significant portion of the ground, which is visible to the 100,000 people who pass by the site daily on the Metro Red Line, MARC, VRE and Amtrak. Master Artists Pose 2 & Cita “CheLove” Sadeli created two significant tribute murals on the history and future of NoMa. Then, 53 additional artists from DC, MD, VA, PA, NJ and NY added to the canvas with a series of smaller murals and geometric colors
With two Red Line Metro Stations just a few blocks away (NoMa-Gallaudet U and Union Station), as well as the regional transit of MARC, VRE, and Amtrak accessible at Union Station, it is a breeze to get to NoMa Junction @ Storey Park from anywhere.
Past, Present, and Future
From 1983 – 2012, this lot was filled with buses, and served millions of people as a Greyhound Bus Terminal. The site has been empty since Greyhound vacated the site in 2012, but now is being activated with large neighborhood and regional events, including NoMa Summer Screen, NoMa’s award-winning free outdoor movie series. In 2016, construction will begin on Storey Park, a 712,000 SF mixed-use project with office, retail, and residential. Developed by First Potomac Realty Trust and Perseus Realty.
