Here is a quick rundown:

  • There are 22 million square feet of development in the works around the NoMa/Gallaudet University Metro station.
  • DC currently has 61 residential projects under construction that will deliver in 2016 and 2017, for a total of 10,400 units.
  • The most active developer in the city (not limited to residential development) is The JBG Cos. with 18 projects either under construction or in the pipeline.
  • The most active architect is Shalom Baranes with 31 projects in the works.
  • There are six grocery stores currently under construction in the city.
