H Street NE to Celebrate DC Streetcar Line With Upcoming Stroll and Roll Events

Pedicabs to give the public free rides along future streetcar route; participants encouraged to visit H Street Corridor businesses, restaurants and bars

Washington, DC—H Street Main Street, in conjunction with H Street Corridor businesses, will host “Streetcar Stroll and Roll” events on Saturday, July 26 and Saturday, August 23 from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. to promote the upcoming launch of the District’s first streetcar line and highlight the development of the H Street NE Corridor and it’s vibrant businesses.

A number of streetcar style decorated pedicabs will provide the public with free rides along the H Street Corridor from the Union Station to Maryland Ave. NE—the route of the upcoming H/Benning DC Streetcar line. While enjoying the pedicab rides, participants are encouraged to visit H Street NE businesses, restaurants and bars, enjoy displays from local artists that will be featured along the corridor and experience the neighborhood’s unique atmosphere.

“The H Street Corridor has really undergone a dramatic transformation over the last decade and we’re excited the streetcar line will open soon, making travel to H Street NE even easier for District-area residents and tourists,” said Anwar Saleem, Executive Director of H Street Main Street. “H Street NE has so much to offer—exceptional food, shopping and entertainment—and we hope that the public will take advantage of these events and explore the area.”

The H/Benning line will be the first segment of the DC Streetcar system running 2.4 miles along H Street NE and serving residents, businesses, commuters and visitors between Union Station on the west and the Anacostia River on the east. Eventually, the H/Benning segment will be just one piece of the overall One City Line that will cross the city east to west from beyond the Anacostia River all the way to the Georgetown waterfront and facilitate easy travel to the H Street Corridor and other areas of the District.

In addition to celebrating the upcoming launch of the streetcars and the evolution of the H Street Corridor, the July 26 Streetcar Stroll and Roll will mark the grand opening of seven new H Street NE businesses:

  • Art By The Glazz, 407 H Street, NE
  • Halftime Sports Bar, 1427 H Street NE
  • H Street Organic Market, 806 H Street, NE (Great Streets Grant Recipient)
  • Island Dyes, 331 H Street NE
  • Micho’s Lebanese Grill , 500 H Street, NE
  • Po Boy Jim, 709 H Street, NE
  • The Pursuit – Wine Bar & Grill , 1421 H Street NE

The events will take place on Saturday, July 26 and Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. along the route of the upcoming DC Streetcar line. The cabs will take passengers from Union Station to Maryland Ave. NE and back at no charge.

We Need Your Help! http://hstreet.org/we-need-your-help/ http://hstreet.org/we-need-your-help/#comments Sun, 25 May 2014 18:58:18 +0000 http://hstreet.org/?p=4634 Dear HSMS Stakeholders:

We need your help urgently!

anwar-saleem

A message from Anwar Saleem.

The Mayor’s economic development team is actively maneuvering to undermine all the work we have done over the last decade.  H Street NE is not finished!  There is still a lot of work to be done on H Street NE and important corridors extending from and to H Street.

The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) was an important partner in helping H Street propel forward from 30 percent ground floor vacancy to under 10 percent today and toward a number of other important milestones and accolades.  However, current DMPED staff has proposed to take funds that have accrued in the H Street N.E. Retail Priority Grant Fund (Grant Fund) and to disburse them to other neighborhood commercial districts.  Again … H Street NE is not finished!

The Grant Fund is an H Street accomplishment and a testament to all of our ongoing effort to revitalize H Street.  The funds in the account are based on the difference in value added tax wise on H Street between 2007 and today.  We all have worked to realize this difference on H Street.  Now, DMPED has presented legislation to DC Council within the current budget discussion that would take the Grant Fund valued at approximately $20 million through 2017 and send it potentially to Connecticut Avenue NW, 7th Street/Georgia Avenue NW, Adams Morgan, Mount Pleasant Street NW, and other retail priority areas beyond H Street.  H Street NE is not finished!

HSMS certainly wants ALL District commercial corridors to be successful and attractive to immediate neighbors and visitors, but H Street is not done yet.  With streetcar coming online and a number of development projects with new retail space and ongoing improvements needed in existing retail buildings, H Street needs to maintain available resources to assist with attracting and retaining important retail venues.

Both Benning Road and Bladensburg Road are important to what happens on H Street NE.  Developments along both corridors are already benefiting from their intersection with and proximity to H Street.  There is a unique opportunity to work directly with property and business owners on each of these corridors to organize and prepare them for new and complementary investments.  They have asked for assistance from HSMS, and HSMS has the capacity to assist.  DMPED has denied funding to HSMS and now claims that helping retail priority areas throughout the entire city is consistent with helping Benning Road and Bladensburg Road NE.

The help we need from you urgently is your voice!  Please call and email the DC Council before 5 PM on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 and asked them for the following:


Dear Councilmember,

Please help us help the city by continuing to support our efforts on H Street NE.  H Street NE is not finished!  We need all available resources, including and especially the funding of the H Street NE Retail Priority Grant Fund, for H Street NE and important commercial streets intersecting with H Street at its eastern end.

We understand that HSMS has presented preferred language to Council that protects H Street’s interest while offering to assist other corridors on a one-time, demonstration basis.  That preferred language should be adopted in lieu of what DMPED has presented.

Thanks in advance for your work on this.  We will watch the hearing on Wednesday to confirm your support.

Please send the above support message to and call the following DC Councilmembers:

Thanks for your ongoing support of HSMS and our joint efforts on H Street NE.  Please email me at anwar.saleem@hstreet.org.

Washington, DC—On Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013, H Street Main Street will join small businesses on H Street NE and across the District to celebrate Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local small employers, and the H Street Corridor is ripe with unique and vibrant small businesses.

“Despite being the backbone of our local and national economies, small businesses face many obstacles that keep them from growing like a lack of access to credit and uneven consumer demand,” said Anwar Saleem, Executive Director of H Street Main Street. “Holiday sales are vital to small businesses. So, when you support local businesses on Small Business Saturday, you are supporting the development and success of our community as a whole.”

Now in its fourth year, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small businesses across the United States. Small Business Saturday supporters reported spending over $5.5 billion at independently-owned businesses on Small Business Saturday last year, and it’s hoped that this year will be even better.

“Entrepreneurs need all the support they can get in this difficult economic climate to help them grow their businesses, create jobs and strengthen our economy,” said Saleem. “We encourage all Washingtonians to show their support for our small businesses by visiting H Street Corridor on Saturday to shop small.”
