I’ve lived in Washington for almost 16 years. When I arrived the city literally had a dead feel to it… frozen in time. Now, the construction of new residential, commercial and retail projects is overwhelming. When the boom began almost 10 years ago, it was fairly easy to keep track of what was happening. Not anymore.
One example is Mount Vernon Triangle, the area bounded by 7th Street, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey Avenues. It’s practically a mini-neighborhood (“mini-hood”) going up east/southeast of the Convention Center.
Just ran into “The Triangle,” a new blog for the mini-hood… interesting to see what’s happening at MVT. Great map shows what projects are completed or planned — click on the buttons at top of map to see what is retail and what is residential.
