As development continues its eastern push, areas of DC that were former parking lots or low-density industrial uses have given way to mixed-use developments and established new neighborhoods such as Mt. Vernon Triangle, NoMa, and Union Market.
Since 2001, 20.9 million sq. ft. of new buildings have been built or undergone significant renovation. This includes over 10,600 units of housing, 8.4 million sq. ft. of office space and 720,000 sq. ft. of retail space in the area highlighted in the map. This investment has resulted in a 62% increase in residential population since 2010.
Even with all of this growth, there is 34.6 million sq. ft. of additional development still to come, including 4.8 million sq. ft. currently under construction. With an estimated 16,500 net new residential units coming to market over the next 10–15 years the area could conservatively see an additional 30,000 residents.
