Residential housing development has been robust in Washington, DC over the last decade. Ward 6 has experienced the most with nearly 20,000 completed residential units, 8,600 units currently under construction now, and another 6,000 planned in the near term. In addition, there are over 11,000 units that could be potentially developed in the long-term (anywhere from 2 to 15 years). It is uncertain when these long-term projects will actually be built nor exactly what housing type (i.e., apartment versus condo) since the developer may revise based on the economy and the market.
