tysons corner

Stretching a full 2,100 acres and more than three square miles, Tysons is home to more than 19,000 people and millions of square feet of office and retail space. This fast-growing community is also looking ahead to the future with a transformation plan that calls for some specific development in eight distinct districts.

Each of the eight districts will offer up its own selection of residences, shopping and commercial space, plus allow room for recreation. While each will be unique in its own right, the idea is for the districts to connect with each other continuously.

bloomingdale center - washington dc

It’s possible to see examples of gentrification in cities all across the country, but when it comes to cities with the highest percentage of gentrified neighborhoods, DC easily tops the list.
