Old Entrance by M.V. Jantzen
Decades after the trolley system was shut down at Dupont Circle, the city is still looking for a viable use for the abandoned underground space. The last attempt was a food court, creatively named “Dupont Down Under”, however it failed miserably and was only open for a year. In 2007 a proposal to create some adult strip clubs was circulated but not surprisingly it was shot down.
The Post is reporting that the city will be putting out a request for proposals next month to solicit possible uses for the 100,000 square foot space. Council Member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) says, “It needs to be a destination place that people will come to.” What a novel idea.
