BicycleSPACE is excited to announce the signing of a lease for a new location in the up-and-coming Hecht Warehouse District. The repurposed industrial space at 1512 Okie St NE features more than 4,000 square feet of retail and service space. A summer 2015 opening is planned.
The new shop will join the dynamic and rapidly changing neighborhood and pair well with established neighbors like Open Studio DC, Atlas Brew Works, New Columbia Distillers, One Eight Distilling and Mom's Organic Market -- all less than a five-minute walk away -- while forming part of the foundation for the community that will rise outside our doors . The shop will be an easy ride from Capitol Hill, neighborhoods in NE and East of the River; it will also be a convenient stopping point for commuters in Prince George’s County and beyond. We look forward to bringing great products, great service and great community support to everyone living in and moving through the area.
“I am thrilled that BicycleSPACE is going to be part of this transformational Douglas Development project," said co-founder Phil Koopman. "From the rebirth of the abandoned space, to creating a walkable-bikeable community that is connected to the greater city, to serving the residents of the historic Trinidad and Ivy City neighborhoods, we can’t imagine a better place to meld the old and the new as our city continues to grow.”
The Northeast location is in addition to -- not instead of -- the previously announced shop at 440 K St NW. BicycleSPACE will operate at both locations.
