NoMa's Second Radio Station Nears Completion

[Renderings: Hickock Cole via Washingtonian]

National Public Radio is bursting at the seams in their old building in Mt. Vernon Triangle but in a few months they'll be able to stretch out into new state-of-the-art digs in NoMa on North Capitol Street. The major construction is complete and interiors are being gussied up so the staff can start to transition to the new building in April. NPR will join Sirius XM in NoMa so there will be double the number of radio stations in a neighborhood which will surely ups its cool factor (NPR is cool, right?). The over seven hundred staff that NPR's presence will bring to the nabe is going to have a dramatic impact on its growth—food trucks should start planning their spring routes now. Once the building is ready the public can take a guided tour to learn about both the history of NPR and its new LEED Gold building
