L Street Plaza

The Park Idea

The L Street Plaza was envisioned as NoMa’s “town square” and would be the main spot for community events like farmers markets and concerts, as well as larger regional events, such as fairs and festivals. Consistent with the Public Realm Design Plan and community feedback, preliminary design for the Plaza includes an open plaza, permanent and occasional seating, horizontal and vertical green spaces, water and artistic elements.

Although the original location of the L Street Plaza could not be realized, the NoMa Parks Foundation is working to find another area for a Central Civic Plaza in the neighborhood.
