D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has pledged to bring thousands of new residents to downtown D.C. in her third term as mayor.
During her swearing in on Monday, she said she would work to covert unused office buildings downtown into residential units.
“Right now, 25,000 people call downtown home. Here’s our goal: we will add 15,000 residents over the next five years, and 87,000 before it’s all said and done,” Bowser said. “That’s right, a new 100,000 resident goal.”
“For Lease” signs can be seen on buildings throughout downtown, which is still recovering after the pandemic sent workers home and away from traditional office spaces.
