The Office of Planning’s (OP’s) Temporary Urbanism program transforms vacant spaces into active ones through arts, cultural, and other programming. As part of this program, OP is undertaking a ‘Third Place’ initiative that is intended to create a vibrant destination where people can socialize and work in what was previously an underutilized space. The initiative leverages OP’s previous temporary urbanism efforts as well as OP’s Creative DC Action Agenda and DC Vibrant Retail Toolkit, which together promote placemaking, entrepreneurship and vibrant destinations in emerging neighborhoods. The Lobby Project is made possible through a grant from the DC Office of Planning.
