Washington, DC—The Washington, DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP), in Retail Site Searchcoordination with the DC GIS (a program within the Office of the Chief Technology Officer), is pleased to announce the release of a new tool for retailers, restaurants and small businesses that will help them find space in the District of Columbia.

The new retail site search allows retailers to query more than 280 retail opportunities by size, neighborhood, timeframe and address or intersection. The information on each site includes the space available for lease, Metrorail and traffic counts, neighborhood demographics, images of the space and leasing contacts.

The tool integrates technologies and data from Google Maps & Streetview, DCGIS, OCTO and the WDCEP. Beyond the retail site information a user will also be able to learn what the zoning is around a site or determine the size of an adjacent parcel using the map layers function.

The WDCEP provided the retail sites and the design of the web site and partnered with DC GIS (dcgis.dc.gov) to create the functionality of the tool.

The new retail site search can be accessed from the WDCEP’s website, www.wdcep.com.


The WDCEP is a 501(c)3 non-profit, public/private partnership dedicated to promoting business opportunities throughout DC and contributing to business retention and attraction activities. For more information visit www.wdcep.com.
