RETAIL STUDY FOR VAN NESS
Van Ness Main Street , UDC , and Bernstein Management Corporation are supporting the development of a retail study for Van Ness. The study will be conducted by HR&A and should be completed in 60 days. There were several consulting firms that responded to the RFP and HR&A was selected as the best fit for our needs here in Van Ness. The study will help us meet the community’s goal of creating a stronger retail market in Van Ness by maximizing the retail potential, needs, and desires of our diverse constituencies.

We are excited to announce the second annual Van Ness Made in DC Pop Up Shop. What started as a two day event last year is now expanding into a multi-weekend event with a kick-off on November 25 for Small Business Saturday followed by the next three weekends in December.
The pop up shop will be located at 4340 Connecticut Ave. Special thanks to UDC for donating space for our Made in DC Pop up.
