D.C.'s new zoning boundaries, mapped

This interactive map was created by the D.C. Office of Zoning

On September 6, brand new zoning regulations went into effect in Washington, D.C. for the first time since 1958. In order to keep track of which areas of the District are residential, mixed-use, or special purpose, the D.C. Office of Zoning created this interactive map.

In the interactive map, there is a sidebar that defines eight categories: Residential; Residential Flat; Residential Apartment; Neighborhood Mixed Use; Mixed Use; Downtown; Production, Distribution and Repair; and Special Purpose.

In the map, when clicking on a colored area, a box will appear, showing the zoning, zone district, and description of the area.
