The DC Development Report is a summary of the major development and construction projects in the District of Columbia. The Washington, DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP) began tracking development activity in 2001 with the hope of creating a comprehensive database that would answer a number of questions in regards to the construction activity in the city. The Report summarizes our entire database of projects, highlights major projects and what lies ahead for development in the District of Columbia.
This update of the DC Development Report is an overview of development activity and of the expansion occurring in DC. As a resource book, it is a compilation of nearly 14 years of data collection and research that provides an overview of an ever-changing development and construction cycle.
The WDCEP performs an annual “development census” in the month of September and receives contributions from more than 100 developers, architects, contractors and economic development organizations. This outreach results in updates to more than 350 projects. While our database of projects is constantly being updated, for the purposes of this publication all data reflects project status, design and information as of September 2014.
In 2014 the WDCEP partnered with CBRE to provide an economic overview of DC and in-depth analysis of the office, retail and residential markets. Although every attempt was made to ensure the quality of the information contained in this document, the WDCEP and CBRE makes no warranty or guarantee as to its accuracy, completeness or usefulness for any given purpose.
