All the ins and outs of the development world have been revealed in the latest report from the Washington, D.C. Economic Partnership. In the report, the public is able to learn about all of the biggest projects in D.C.'s office, retail, residential, hospitality, and education sectors. The report also goes into detail about certain neighborhood developments like Union Market and Buzzard Point.

When it comes to what the report had to say about residential development in the city, here's what you should know: From the third quarter of 2015 through August 2016, the three largest residential projects completed in D.C. proper were Park Chelsea with 429 units, the Hecht Warehouse District with 353 units, and Fort Totten Square with 345 units.

Residential projects in the pipeline that the public should look forward to include the McMillan Sand Filtration site redevelopment (660 units), Ballpark East at 1201 Half Street SE (438 units), and The Griffith at 965 Florida Avenue NW (428 units).
