Why This Matters

What You'll Learn

- Which NE developments in DC will benefit from the proposed Comprehensive Plan?

- As Union Market booms, how is H Street working to remain competitive with its retail neighbor?

- As more young residents are moving towards Rhode Island Avenue and Fort Totten, what retail tenants and office opportunities can we expect to follow suit?

- How can local universities work to retain students in NE DC to continue living and working in the quadrant, particularly in a post-pandemic environment?

- How can private developers work with public officials to provide additional affordable housing in NE DC?

How You'll Do More Business: Beyond the tangle of New York Avenue's train tracks, the H Street Corridor and NE DC neighborhoods — Deanwood, Fort Totten, Rhode Island Avenue, and Brookland continue their slow but sure steps of development and growth. Now that most of the land around NoMa and Union Market has been developed or bought, a new wave of development has begun, leading to developers acquiring land and properties more north of Union Station. 

What developers are entering the development scene in NE DC — and where have they set their sights? And for those that have been developing in NE DC for a longer period of time, how have they navigated community demands, court appeals, and more? 

Who Attends: Owners, developers, investors, public officials, and service providers all who have a vested interest in developing NE DC.

What You Get: Access to all live content, panel replays on-demand, and live networking that is dynamic and actually useful. Networking tools include direct messaging, lobby chat and speed networking which have led to over 3,000 matches this year.
