The Washington Coliseum, formerly the Uline Arena, was the site of the first concert by The Beatles in the United States in 1964.  The building was originally built for the hockey team the Washington Lions of the now defunct Eastern Amateur Hockey League.  The building was renamed the Washington Coliseum in 1959 by new ownership and hosted many more great concerts and sporting events.  The building is in the NoMa neighborhood near Union Station and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Douglas Development acquired the building in the mid-2000′s and is working on plans to re-develop the historic structure into a mixed use property with retail and office uses.
