Transitioning D.C. neighborhoods identified in D.C. tax report
Columbia Heights, Brookland, the H Street Corridor and Anacostia are among a group of neighborhoods that a District of Columbia commission has identified as "transitioning" - or gentrifying - in a new report.
The report from the D.C. Tax Revision Commission, which was obtained and first published by the Washington Business Journal, identifies more than a dozen neighborhoods that fit a unique profile.
They're all areas, according to the commission, where median property value and gross income was below D.C.'s average before 2001 but climbed north of both figures just a decade later.
The report indicates that these neighborhoods saw dramatic changes in average age, income levels, property values and tax liabilities.
The neighborhoods named in the report include:
|Eckington||Fort Dupont Park|
|Ledroit Park||Lily Ponds|
|Marshall Heights||H Street NE|
|Sixteenth Street Heights||Trinidad|
The Washington Business Journal's Michael Neibauer also points out that other hallmarks of transitioning neighborhoods, including condominium construction and a soaring rate of single tax filings, grew exponentially between 2001 and 2010.
