The results of a recent survey on home design trends by the American Institute of Architects reads like a play book for recent DC new construction.

Most interesting blog post on the Streets of Washington blog about the colorful past of the parcel in Mount Vernon Triangle where City Vista is now located. This parcel was previously home to the District's first convention center. The first auto show in Washington's history was held at this location in 1900.
