The DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment recognizes the Lab 1270 as the September 2016 Location of the Month.
Lab 1270, located at 1270 5th Street NE in the heart of the Union Market District is a unique space offering authentic feeling to a former warehouse-only hub. It has been used as a retail plus concept shop, space where national retailers and members of the DC creative community combine forces to form a lively retail, experience, and workspace.
Located on 5th Street catty-corner to Union Market, the space offers market-goers various opportunities to support established and emerging retailers and artists. For the artists and small business owners, it is an opportunity to cross-fertilize best practices in running and launching their businesses as they take their brand to the next level.
Local creative economy contributors such as No Kings Collective, A Creative DC, Made in DC, Craft Kombucha, Dunn-Lewis MC, S3 Active, South Block Juice, Thursday Boots, and Time off DC have all utilized the space innovatively. The entire market area, inclusive of the exterior façade offers a unique gritty urban experience and a local horror movie production was also shot on nearby 4th Street.
An on-site facility manager is available to answer any questions about the space, its features, and any use restrictions
