Today Barracks Row Main Street released two separate studies analyzing and reporting on business conditions on Barracks Row and the opportunities to stimulate continued growth and development. One of the studies identified the balanced mixture of businesses with an
almost even split between residential, professional/non profits, tangible goods/ restaurants and bars. “This historic street, Washington DC’s first real corridor of commerce has made a phenomenal comeback since 2000 when the National Trust chartered it as one of DC’s Main Street programs,” said Tip Tipton, President of Barracks Row Main street, the organization which has overseen the redevelopment and revitalization of the area. “It’s now home to a bustling mixture of businesses and residences. Our businesses serve the vital needs of the diverse Capitol Hill community.”
