Database of Vacant Retail Space in DC

Looking for vacant retail space? What about creative space for an art studio or interior design firm?

The Washington, DC Economic Partnership, is expanding its database of 265 vacant and soon-to-be-available sites in DC and introducing what will be the city’s first comprehensive site location survey to help businesses locate available retail space in the city. Using cameras with built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to photograph and record information on occupied and vacant mixed-use, retail and commercial storefronts, the organization has combed commercial corridors such as Minnesota, Georgia and Wisconsin Avenues and South Capitol and Kennedy Streetsareas not currently covered by an existing neighborhood business improvement district or community improvement district.

Look for the additional information to be posted at by the end of this month.
