An Arts Incubator Could Be Coming to 14th Street: Figure 1

There was a lot on the agenda last night at the monthly ANC 2F meeting: new condos, parking, and even the possibility that an arts incubator could be coming to 14th Street. Sheldon Scott, from the team behind Marvin, The Gibson, Patty Boom Boom and a slew of other DC hotspots, introduced the concept to the ANC.

Though a lease has yet to be finalized, the group has plans to turn the space previously occupied by HR-57 at 1610 14th Street NW (map) into a work and play space for DC’s artists that would also serve food and drink. With three stories for musicians, visual artists and other performance artists to work, the space will also open up to the public for events like gallery openings, live performances and exhibitions. They are applying for a liquor license and will have a restaurant element, but Scott stressed that the location would not be a club. He told the ANC that since the corridor is bursting with restaurants and bars that they wanted the new space to be a little more varied.

We will update the progress of this concept as we receive progress reports.
