Why This Matters

All eyes are on Southwest DC when it comes to discussing development trends in the DC region! 

Once an industrial hotbed on the waterfront, Southwest DC was torn down and rebuilt in the 1950s. Today, Southwest DC breathes another unique quality in comparison to other DC neighborhoods - its distinct sense of culture. From top restauranteurs opening new dining opportunities, to Arena Stage, the Smithsonian and the Spy Museum, public libraries and more, Southwest is slowly becoming DC's ultimate live-work-play destination.

From the success of the Wharf Phase I and the incredible potential of Phase II, to the National Mall to the north, Southwest DC pulls approximately 16 million visitors a year — and the numbers are steadily increasing. Top office tenants, including Williams & Connolly, are leaving the downtown core for new opportunities in SW. What other major companies will soon follow suit?
