I see your point H St, and I certainly didn't mean to imply the area would stay static. Renewal to me entails a relatively significant increase of in migration, especially of higher income residents with disposal income to support broader economic activity. I just don't see the market for that at the moment. No one I know has ever mentioned seriously considered moving to Anacostia.

Also, I think 'available parcels is misleading. There are definitely plenty of parcels all over the city that would not be considered in real estate parlance "highest and best use". Maybe if the Navy Yard takes off strongly as a mixed-use 24 hour destination and the streetcar gets well implemented then Anacostia will be poised for significant changes in 5-10 years. Until then I think transit-accessible WOTR locations will continue to soak up most of the development in the near future.
