dc.description.abstractThe gross underutilization of civic infrastructure in Washington, D.C. has developed into an issue that stretches beyond statistical analysis, and speaks directly to the contemporary ideals that are eroding the city. Infrastructure spending has been focused primarily along the K Street corridor in the form of metro stations, bus routes and the proposed trolley car service, which was a measure that was passed by the city in order to alleviate mounting pressure on the underground metro rail system. In order to rectify this mounting concern, the problem has been identified as a lack of mixed uses only the K Street Corridor, which could easily be resolved by the integration of residential units alongside office, retail and hospitality space. Fostering an environmental that supports a live-work-place attitude will be a step in the right direction in transforming D.C. into a desirable place to live for economies of all scales.en_US
