IN THIS WEEK'S ISSUE:

After 14 years in our humble office trailer at Union Station, the Capitol Hill BID has moved! Our new office is conveniently located at 1451 Pennsylvania Ave SE.

With considerably more office space, ample storage for our Clean and Safe Teams, and close proximity to Barracks Row, Eastern Market and the rest of the Hill, we couldn't be more excited to have a new place to call home!

We look forward to welcoming you to our new space once we are a bit more settled - keep an eye out for an open house invite in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to stop in and take a peek!
 
Lastly, we wanted to thank Union Station Redevelopment Corp. for their hospitality for all of those years. We couldn't have done it without their generosity!
