District Source: REI Confirms Lease for Uline in NoMa
REI is hosting an event at Union Market next week to “celebrate” its new store coming to NoMa, adding much more certainty to the retailer’s plans to come to rapidly developing neighborhood in NE DC, the Washington Business Journal reports.
The outdoor gear and supply store will be the anchor tenant at Douglas Development’s Uline development, 1140 3rd St. NE, near the NoMa Metro and a few blocks south of Union Market.
Uline, the site of the first Beatles’ concert in the U.S., will include 70,000 square feet of retail and 174,000 square feet of office space.
In December Paul Millstein of Douglas Development told the local Advisory Neighborhood Commission that REI would be their tenant, but the event announcement from REI today is the closest the company has come to confirming their future plans for NoMa.
