Former H Street Playhouse Site to Become CrossFit Gym
The Washington Business Journal brings news that we're getting a new CrossFit gym at 1365 H Street. This will be the second CrossFit gym to open on our stretch of H Street. Old City CrossFit (810 H Street) opened in late October. The new gym will be called CrossFit DC Northeast. If you ever visited the H Street Playhouse, you already know the space is absolutely huge (4,500 square feet).
CrossFit DC currently has another location on 14th Street. The demographics of the two sites are different, but the business owners expressed in the WBJ article that they very much like the fact that H Street is home to many smaller & independent businesses. This can lead to a strong feeling of community along the Corridor.
One very exciting, yet less obvious, aspect of this gym news is that it could help boost daytime foot traffic along this portion of H Street.
