“There is no other space like it in the District. T he Dupont Underground comprises 15,000 sq.ft. of repurposed infrastructural space. What does that mean, you ask? It lies beneath Dupont Circle. Opened in 1949 as a trolley station, 15,000 sq.ft. of underground platforms and tunnels were closed off in 1962, when the city’s streetcar system shut down. Other than designation as fallout shelter in the late 1960s and hosting a short-lived food court on the west platform in the mid-1990s, the space has remained empty. Until now. ”
