WDCEP Releases 2011 Neighborhood Profiles
The Washington, DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP) released its highly anticipated 2011 Neighborhood Profiles this week at ICSC’s Mid-Atlantic IDEA Exchange. The Profiles, one of the WDCEP’s most popular publications, offers detailed information on 37 neighborhoods and major commercial corridors as well as the Main Street programs and Great Streets Initiatives for retailers and small businesses researching where to set up shop.
Highlights of the 2011 Neighborhood Profiles include:
- Two new neighborhoods: New York Avenue & Bladensburg Road and Upper 14th Street/Tivoli North
- New maps that highlight retail anchors and traffic generators
- Updated Metrorail Counts and Walk Scores
The 2011 Neighborhood Profiles allow national, regional and local retailers to learn how DC and its neighborhoods are changing through a retail-friendly designed printed booklet, complete with demographics, dynamic facts, comprehensive overviews and key “need to know” points of interest specific to each neighborhood in the publication.
The WDCEP collaborated with numerous DC Government agencies and neighborhood community organizations, to produce the profiles. Each profile includes an overview of the commercial district, demographic information, map, neighborhood highlights and contact information for new business opportunities.
The Neighborhood Profiles are a central part of the WDCEP’s business attraction and retention efforts, which has helped to attract and expand national and local retailers to DC.
The 2011 Neighborhood Profile book as well as individual copies of the Profiles can be found at the WDCEP’s office (1495 F Street, NW; Washington, DC) as well as at www.wdcep.com on the Neighborhoods page (under DC Profile).
