How You'll Do More Business?
It's no secret that Downtown DC was impacted the most for the past two years, however, we are already seeing improvement in the area. In comparison to early 2021, Downtown DC's economy has increased by 17%. We are seeing an increase in rent, retail sales, tourism, as well as a drop in vacancy numbers. Although DC's recovery will not be easy, a strong rebound will occur as more office developments and incentivizing conversions are being created to bring people back. Join us and learn more about new projects and initiatives, DC's office and retail scene and so much more!
