D.C. Shares in Amazon Growth: 5 Premier Condos on the Market Today

The numbers don’t lie. D.C.’s population is growing at a staggering rate and the influx of people has only been exacerbated by last year’s Amazon HQ2 decision. Overall, this is an exciting time for the city, but a recent report suggests D.C. has added twice as many people as housing units since 2000. That means Amazon’s entrance has further stretched a RE market that was already playing catch up with demand. But don’t worry. There are still several fantastic and available residencies if you’re looking. Now intrinsically connected to one another, D.C. is sharing in Amazon’s growth with several new condo developments looking for owners all over the metropolitan area. These locals provide prospective buyers with an opportunity to get into a new building with amazing new finishes, ample amenities, and experience and participate in a vibrant neighborhood culture.
