It’s that time of the year again, the time for Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) to hold their third annual March Madness event. While not related to the NCAA’s tournament, it’s still exciting—at least for many developers waiting to jump on the chance to nab vacant properties in Washington, D.C.
Last year, there were a little over 15 projects announced. This year, there are over 20, spanning throughout almost all of the Wards in Washington, D.C.
According to a presentation hosted by the DMPED, there is currently 1.5 million square feet of retail space under construction in D.C. with 800,000 square feet expected to deliver this year. For residential space, D.C. will deliver over 8,200 residential units in 2017, 85 percent of which are apartments. Finally, for hotel space, D.C. is expected to increase hotel room supply by 2.7 percent in 2017 and 3 percent in 2018.
