CityCenterDC is like my new favorite area even though it’s still under construction. The CityCenter encompass five city blocks and is bound together by New York Ave NW, 9th Street NW, H Street NW and 11th Street NW.
As of 2011, the development is one of the largest downtown projects in the United States,and the largest urban development on the East Coast of the United States.It has been described as “a modern-day Rockefeller Center” and will reshape downtown D.C. Local officials consider CityCenterDC critical to the city’s economic and residential development.
