By The Numbers: 2007 Neighborhood Profiles Highlight DC’s Economic Potential
Ask anyone about the economic vitality of the District of Columbia and you will hear a mix of answers as diverse as the population of the city. Yet separating opinions from facts often is a more complex matter. With the publication of Neighborhood Profiles 2007, the Washington, DC Economic Partnership offers detailed demographic information, statistical references, maps and photos that illustrate the socio-economic stories of a broad cross-section of the District’s most dynamic neighborhood business districts.
The Neighborhood Profiles were first published in 2001 as reference sheets highlighting the economic development potential of 13 different neighborhoods in the District of Columbia. This year’s edition expands the coverage to 32 neighborhoods and commercial corridors, including the DC Main Streets programs, New Communities Initiative, and Great Streets Initiative. Here you will find the underlying statistics and demographic data that offer proof of the city’s true economic potential. The publication is one of the resources used for promoting opportunity sites for retail and commercial business attraction at trade shows such as the International Council of Shopping Centers regional and annual conventions; MAPIC, the leading international market for retail real estate; and at meetings with developers, real estate brokers and entrepreneurs seeking more information about specific neighborhoods and emerging commercial corridors in the District of Columbia. Individual Neighborhood Profiles are on display and available at the Economic Partnership’s office.
