For those have been watching, the area between New York and Massachusetts Avenues has experienced a quiet explosion. If you have been to City Vista and the Safeway, Taylors and future Vida location there you’ll see that the area is growing. They have been lone outposts in a field of empty lots but the end (?) of the recession is causing the area to boom. DC Mud and UrbanTurf both have articles on new buildings in the area. Several other developers have bought up the lots and have plans to continue building. Keep an eye on this area….
