Adams Morgan has seen an influx of new development over the past five years. During the 12-year timeframe from 2001–2012 more than 1,000 residential units were built or underwent significant renovations in the highlighted area above. However, approximately 880 residential units have been developed since 2013, with another 420 units under construction. Of these 1,300 new units, it is estimated that more than 1,000 units are net new. These investments, along with the amenities in the neighborhood, has contributed to a 9% population increase since 2010.
Acclaimed chefs have followed this increase in density with The Michelin Guide featuring seven restaurants in the neighborhood including Roofers Union, The Diner, Sakuramen, Mintwood Place, Jack Rose Dining Saloon, Lapis (Bib Gourmand), and Tail Up Goat (one star).
The neighborhood will also soon welcome The Line DC hotel which will feature restaurants from James Beard-recognized chefs Spike Gjerde and Erik Bruner-Yang. The 227-room hotel will restore and preserve the First Church of Christ, Scientist church building and construct a nine-story addition.
