(Washington, DC) -- On Friday, October 15, Washington, DC’s new Center for Green Urbanism welcomes you to an opening celebration for the first green-inspired business and art center east of the Anacostia River. The Center is an art-infused business incubator providing office space to small and mid-size companies, an environmentally-themed art gallery and demonstration model for homes and businesses in the heart of downtown Ward 7. The Grand Opening will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 8 p.m.
The Center for Green Urbanism borders the National Fort Mahan Park. Its environmental ties has attracted the attention of the national organization Groundwork USA.
