WASHINGTON, DC-The lease for the first retail tenant to service the new US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives headquarters located at New York and Florida avenues in NoMA has been inked. Last October, federal employees began moving into the newly completed headquarters.

As part of the development an ancillary 8,000-sf building just outside the New York Ave. Metro station at 2nd and N St., was also erected for retail. Local entrepreneur and Washington native Khalil Ghannan will open Pound Coffee there in the first quarter of 2008. Capitol Retail Group and LeDroit Park Development Co. are handling the leasing and expect to announce additional retail leases later this quarter. It will be the first coffee shop in NoMa.

The retail leases further NoMa’s goal of becoming a work-live-play area, says Elizabeth Price, president of the NoMa Business Improvement District. “The transformation of NoMa began in earnest in 2007 with more than 1.5 million sf under construction and more than three million planned in 2008,” she says. “The new year will bring exciting new retail and residential opportunities to NoMa with 2,500 apartments, 300,000 sf of retail and 400 hotel rooms planned.”
