NoMa Business Improvement District

NoMa Business Improvement District The NoMa Business Improvement District supports the transformation of the NoMa neighborhood through planning, economic development, public space improvements, marketing, events, and more.

NoMa is a vibrant, growing neighborhood at the heart of Washington, D.C., nestled among Union Station, the U.S. Capitol, Shaw, Union Market, and the H Street NE corridor. Already, NoMa has more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, and almost 40 percent of NoMa’s office space is home to private-sector tenants, including major media, technology, and think-tank organizations. Each day, more than 100,000 people are out and about in NoMa’s commercial core. Through a public-private partnership with the D.C. government, the neighborhood will soon have great new parks and public spaces — an important development, as NoMa now contains 4,800 new apartments (with more on the way), and more than 54,000 people work here each day. NoMa is also the District’s most connected neighborhood, with a Walk Score of 94, stellar cycling infrastructure, unparalleled rail options, two Metro stops, and vehicular access to major highways. The NoMa BID organizes dozens of free community events each year and is the only D.C. BID to offer a free, outdoor WiFi network.

Mission: The NoMa BID organizes 50+ free events a year, plants seasonal flowers and trees, is involved in economic development, urban planning initiatives, and designing cutting-edge parks. This nonprofit provides services to keep the neighborhood inviting, fun, and attractive, including: • Cleaning and safety services • Neighborhood marketing and free community events • Coordinating public and private investments and services • Enhancing the community by promoting employment and community projects with NoMa neighbors

We had the chance to reflect at @inamericaflags exhibit by artist @sfirstenberg this weekend. We mourn the loss of everyone affected by Covid-19. This experience was a great reminder to wear a mask for your safety and the safety of others. We are NoMa strong, and we will get through these unprecedented times together. You can place a white flag at RFK Stadium from now to November 6 to remember a life lost to Covid-19 or watch the live webcam from the safety of your home. Stay strong. ❤️ 📸photo by @estaciedc

As Christina Sturdivant Sani writes, "On any given day, the Washington, DC region's Metropolitan Branch Trail is teaming with an eclectic mix of people on foot, bike and scooter. Their destinations very, but they have a common thread: They want an uncomplicated and reliable commute; the MBT provides that and so much more."https://online.flippingbook.com/view/992301/10/

Since visiting Baltimore in April 2016 for a possible move to the city from DC, each time that I see this BALTIMORE SIGN at Penn Station, I wonder what I can do to inspire a similar sign at the Union Station railyard in Washington DC.
I'm surprised the BID hasn't shared this news yet!
