This only covers the District itself, not the broader metro area:

The most interesting statistics from DC’s development report

The Washington DC Economic Partnership is hosting its annual meeting today, so we decided to go through their annual report and pick out some of the most interesting statistics and highlights when it comes to development in the city.
  • 59 projects totaling 6.4 million square feet will deliver in DC this year.
  • DC currently has 84 residential projects under construction that will deliver in the next three years, for a total of 11,241 units.
  • Nearly 90 percent of the 14,847 residential units under construction in DC will be rental apartments.
  • In the 12 months ending September 2016, the city has issued 5,129 housing permits, up 24.1% from a year ago.
  • In the Union Market/NoMa sub-market, there is 15.6 million square feet of development under construction or in the pipeline, including approximately 11,400 residential units and 4.6 million square feet of office space.

Central Washington shouldn't get too glassy, it's a city of limestone, marble and plaster.

Classically, many Washington buildings have concrete under the surface. Bare concrete facades aren't for this place though - or for any other, frankly.

Most of DC is actually brick. If you think it's all marble, limestone or brutalism, you haven't really left Downtown or L'Enfant Plaza.

That said, glass is a marked improvement.

909 Half Street now has a name - One Hill South

When it comes to the residential project we have been referring to as 909 Half Street, I may have engaged in some gentle mocking throughout its development and construction, given the lack of information released as the building made its way through the pipeline.

But, it has now been revealed that the 380ish-unit building has been christened One Hill South, and even has a new address of 28 K Street SE.

Fresh Gramercy District renderings, and a new big name partner for the smart city project

The team behind the planned $500 million Gramercy District fronting the Ashburn Silver Line Metro station has released sharp new renderings and the name of another business that has joined the effort to bring the region's first smart city to life. FedBid Inc., an online reverse auction platform that calls Revolution Growth an investor, is now a member of the 22 CityLink team, developer 22 Capital Partners announced Monday. Through 22 CityLink, the goal is to create a "Smart City In-a-Box" platform not only to develop the 2.5 million-square-foot Gramercy District on 16.8 acres in Ashburn, but smart cities across the country.

Gramercy District will sit adjacent to the future Ashburn Metro station on the north side of the Dulles Greenway, between the Greenway and Comstock Partners' 26-acre Loudoun Station. The project is expected to include three luxury multifamily buildings, a hotel, 150,000 square feet of retail, an office building, a business center, two parking garages, and a series of public plazas and open spaces. As a smart city, the idea is to "bake" technology into the guts of the development.

Really anything will work there as long as it meets the street edge and is a large glass box right up to the height limit (street ROW plus 20 feet).

I didn't get it. However, as a DC resident for too long, there are indeed too many ugly concrete buildings in the downtown area for my liking. Around SW DC and just off the Mall you can see blocks of intimidating brutalist government crap that are basically bad design.

I'm not a fan of this glass box either.

Yes, I know this area. I rarely feel the need to go downtown to see the sea of corporate buildings that are basically charmless. I don't see why people would go there unless they have business purposes. The problem is, there are too few areas downtown that are conducive to hanging out and all the buildings look pretty banal sorry to say. The most interesting design seems to be happening in the suburbs of Virginia and that is sad.

Nestlé to move US headquarters to Virginia, bringing 750 jobs
Quote:
Nestlé USA, the maker of Häagen-Dazs, Baby Ruth, Lean Cuisine and dozens of other mass brands, is moving its U.S. headquarters to Arlington, Virginia's Rosslyn area, bringing roughly 750 jobs to a part of Virginia struggling with widespread office vacancies.

The world's largest packaged-food company - which bills itself as a nutrition, health and wellness company - will move in to the region's tallest building, which has remained vacant since it was completed in late 2013. Nestlé was lured to the area, executives say, by its proximity to lawmakers, regulators and lobbyists - and more than $16 million in state and county subsidies
