Why This Matters

There are various ways to enter D.C. from other states, but one of the more popular motor routes is by approaching New York Avenue. At the moment, this area feels disjointed — a cluster of unused hotels, vacant lots, eventually opening into NoMa and revealing all DC has to offer. But shouldn't developers and city officials working to improve the neighborhood that so many tourists consider their first impression of Washington D.C.? 

It's starting to happen — with slow, but sure steps. Developers are working to ensure the communities living in these areas are not ousted by providing affordable options, all the while making New York Avenue a welcome area for others. Could New York Avenue possibly be DC's next burgeoning neighborhood?

Join us as we bring together the region's top developers making a difference in this neighborhood as they share their 2020 vision for New York avenue. It's a Bisnow event you don't want to miss!
