How Large Will the New BID Be?

The BID’s new boundaries, which represent a 76 percent increase in its geographic area, will now cover approximately 12 million square feet of office space, 12,000 residential units, 5,500 hotel rooms and 1.4 million square feet of retail. Together, this geographic area is the largest walkable downtown in Virginia. It is a key priority of the BID to build on the momentum that is already underway and highlight the area as a whole. 

Why Expand the BID Now? 

While the notion of expanding the BID dates back to 2013, there has never been a better or more appropriate time to pursue this important milestone. By expanding the BID’s boundaries beyond Crystal City to include Pentagon City and Potomac Yard – Arlington and establishing our strategic initiatives, we can promote the area as a cohesive and dynamic urban center. This will help us enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and visit here on a daily basis, and support economic development efforts.
