WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Thousands of people walk through D.C.'s DuPont Circle everyday. Some, likely are unaware of what's beneath their feet: 75,000 square feet of abandoned but usable space.
Now, The Arts Coalition of the DuPont Underground has its sights set on giving new life to the space.
Braulio Agnese with The Arts Coalition envisions: "Everything from pop up retail and restaurants to fashion shows, dance and theater events, concert performances."
The Arts Coalition is in the process of finalizing a five year lease with the city for rights to the DuPont Underground. They hope to begin transforming the space by the beginning of 2015.
Agnese said the long-term vision is a mix of the cultural and commercial. Agnese stressed that potential commercial tenants would have to fit the character of the space.
