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.
