DC Initiatives: Great Streets, New Communities and Neighborhood Opportunities

On Wednesday, May 18, 2005 the Washington, DC Marketing Center in conjunction with the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development will present a seminar on DC Initiatives: Great Streets Initiatives, New Communities Initiatives and Neighborhood Development Opportunities.

There are approximately 30 major corridors, which pass through neighborhoods in the District and offer an opportunity to showcase the diverse and unique qualities of life in the District. While land conditions in certain corridors are well maintained and attractive, others are in need of visible improvement. The Great Streets Initiative is designed to implement completed and approved plans that highlight new opportunities to invest in physical development and public realm improvements along the District major corridors

While the Great Streets Initiative looks to improve the appearance of District neighborhood corridors, the Washington, DC Marketing Center looks to attract business to those areas.

This event will mark the release of the Marketing Center’s latest publication, Neighborhood Retail Opportunities. The guide serves as an outline to the millions of dollars in retail development being invested in the District by retailers such as Home Depot, Ann Taylor, Best Buy, Crate & Barrel, H&M, Borders Books and many more. However, the primary focus of the guide will be to showcase DC’s 145 available retail sites, especially those in the neighborhood commercial corridors..

The event is open to the public but space is limited. The cost for this event is $30. Those interested in retail development and opportunities, neighborhood investment opportunities and the development of the city’s commercial corridors are encouraged to attend.

More information on this event will be posted on the Washington, DC Marketing Center website as it becomes available.
