Hot Off the Press—The DC Development Report: 2006/2007 Edition

The Washington, DC Economic Partnership’s Annual Meeting and Development Showcase marked the debut of The DC Development Report: 2006/2007 Edition, our annual reference guide to development activity in the District of Columbia. The current edition represents nearly six years of data collection and highlights numerous construction projects in various stages of development. It is our intent that this guide serves as your first source for information on the development dynamic in the District of Columbia.

The DC Development Report: 2006/2007 Edition summarizes the Washington, DC Economic Partnership’s entire database of projects (more than 970), describes development trends since 2001 and forecasts what lies ahead for development in the District of Columbia. Analysis of development activity is organized by six primary sectors: Office, Retail, Residential, Hospitality, Education and Hope VI Projects. Each section summarizes the top ten development projects completed, those under construction and those that are planned and proposed. Section highlights include photos and renderings and provide detailed information on specific development projects.

A new section introduced in last year’s edition focused on “Development Hotspots.” This edition will offer a drill down examination of six areas in the District of Columbia: Downtown (West End); Mount Vernon; NoMa/H Street; Southwest Waterfront; Baseball District/South Capitol Waterfront; and Marshall Heights. These “hotspots” are areas within the city with current development underway and several projects in the pipeline. Each area was selected based on the level of current activity, as well as the potential for future development.
