OP Great Streets

Neighborhoods in the District of Columbia want vibrant and distinct neighborhood centers filled with proud merchants, well-maintained shops in attractive buildings, excited patrons, and supportive residents. These neighborhoods and others are linked by a series of major corridors that have significant potential to be "great streets" - places where people want to be. 

The Great Streets Initiative is a multi-year, multiple-agency effort to transform nine under-invested corridors into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers using public actions and tools as needed to leverage private investment. The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) is partnering with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and the Office of Planning (OP) to manage the program. More than $200 million is being invested in new mixed use development projects, storefront improvements, transportation, streetscape, and transit improvements along these corridors. In late January 2008, the District made available $95 million in targeted Tax Increment Financing for neighborhood economic development projects which include over 10,000 square feet of quality local and national retail.
