WDCEP Launches Neighborhood Week Campaign
March 19, 2014
The WDCEP organized a Neighborhood Week Campaign for the week of February 18-21 to celebrate the release of the 2014 Neighborhood Profiles.
Each day, the WDCEP shared information about DC’s unique neighborhoods via social media and the WDCEP website including an interactive map that tracks new business openings throughout the District of Columbia. The map below represents the 300+ businesses that opened in 2013 based on collections from media reports and neighborhood blogs. In addition, the WDCEP interviewed the owners of Zeke’s Coffee, Ice Cream Jubilee and Aloetree to discover why they opened in their respective neighborhoods. All of the content from the Neighborhood Week campaign as well as the Neighborhood Profiles can be found here.
The Neighborhood Profiles are used by investors and local community based organizations to market their neighborhoods. The report provides detailed data and market intelligence on 50 distinct neighborhoods in all four quadrants of the City. The Neighborhood Profiles are used by investors and local community based organizations to market their neighborhoods.
Demographic information, Walk Scores, and other data referenced within a half-mile (or 10-minute walk) on the individual profiles are based on the half-mile radius highlighted on each neighborhood map. The number of neighborhoods has increased incrementally over the past decade as investment has spread out across the city.
