Upcoming Developments: Minnesota & Benning / East Capitol Street
This Map of the Month highlights completed and upcoming development north of East Capitol Street. This area is primarily a part of the Deanwood neighborhood in Northeast D.C.
As of 2010, Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue and Minnesota Avenue were designated as Great Streets corridors. A city-funded program, Great Streets provides funds for local businesses to promote economic development and community-building along major D.C. corridors.
Since 2001 more than $1 billion of development has been built in the area, including more than 2,400 residential units and nearly one million sq. ft. of education/medical space. In addition, there is more than five million sq. ft. of planned development in the pipeline (select the table below for more details).
