Today's construction update from the Anacostia Arts Center

Lots to do to get the Anacostia Arts Center ready for its first event - the DO GOOD SUMMIT on Friday, May 3rd! Good news is that construction is ahead of schedule! Yeah! We have already signed a lease with a wellness group that will be holding yoga classes in one of the commercial spaces and one of the commercial suites will be available for short-term rentals such as pop-up galleries and special events.

Interested in leasing gallery or creative retail space in the Anacostia Arts Center? Go HERE to learn more. The Anacostia Arts Center is a project of arts and culture nonprofit ARCH Development Corporation. The new arts center is located in a former Woolworth building located at 1231 Good Hope Rd SE.

P.S. Are you a minority owned business or emerging business (operating for less than a year)? Think Local First, presenters of this year's DO GOOD SUMMIT have 30 sponsored scholarships for $49.50 tickets to this year's DO GOOD SUMMIT!  Contact Stacey for details at

New lobby coming soon! Check out the new wood floors! 
Imagine lots of new reception seating including seating for the coffee bar in the new lobby.
A stage was installed, looking forward to live performances in the lobby! 

Work proceeds at a fast clip for the black box theater and rehearsal space. 

Getting the ceiling prepared for the special lighting system.  Can't wait! 

Gallery and Retail space now available! 
Getting the gallery and retail spaces ready for their new tenants!

Love how the windows bring in the natural light from the skylights!
