Does H Street have 20,000k plus density? It always strikes me as being much less dense than the Dupont,14th Street neighborhoods. It will be interesting to see how it turns out. It is kind of off by itself. It would be nice to see NOMA connect H Street to the core the way the West End/Foggy ties Georgetown to the core.
Yes, some census blocks in the H Street NE corridor have already attained 20,000k plus residential density. Some others are pretty close.

The map that I've made and attached to this thread is a draft and will be part of a larger citywide map and written anaylsis that I will be finishing up over the next few weeks. I put it here to get feedback and comments first. I'll have a map of what DC high density residential looks like now versus what it should look like in 13 years.

To get to Boston residential population density, DC would need to have around 775,000 residents. If current population trends hold, DC would be up over 700,000 residents before the end of this decade.

I'd be interested to see how the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments revises its cooperative forecasting for population and households based on the increased population growth in DC as of late. Generally, it looks like DC will be moving a few spaces up on the largest US cities list this decade.

Looks like it will be interesting work, look forward to your analysis.
