REI, Uline Arena Anchor, to Open in Late 2016: Figure 1

It’s official: REI will open at Uline Arena in late 2016.

The outdoor retailing giant announced the news, which UrbanTurf first reported in December, at Union Market on Wednesday night. The new REI will become one of five flagship stores across the country and is the first REI within the District.

The Uline project from Douglas Development will be mixed-use with 70,000 square feet of retail — 51,000 of those reserved for REI — and 170,000 square feet of office space. Ceiling heights in the store itself will reach 20 feet, according to Douglas, and the company will build in outdoor space along M and 3rd Street to help activate the area for pedestrians.

The Uline Arena is best known as the site of the Beatles’ first concert in the U.S.
