Georgetown BID
Submarket Overview

From larger scale office buildings close to the Georgetown Waterfront’s great views, to creative and funky small spaces in historic buildings, Georgetown’s office tenant community spans a mix of law firms, architecture and design firms, consulting firms, medical and healthcare services, marketing/PR agencies, high technology firms, financial firms, entrepreneurial start-ups and more.

There is approximately 3.5 million square feet of office space in Georgetown, mostly concentrated in buildings between M and K Streets, N.W., and Washington Harbour.

Georgetown is home to start-ups, creative firms, company headquarters, and the original company that preceded IBM in the historic Canal Square building on 31st Street. Long-time tenants “stay” in Georgetown because of the rich amenities offered for their employees, as well as its easy accessibility to Washington’s suburbs.

Amenities for employees abound, as Georgetown is home to over 450 stores, restaurant & food options, salons/spas, art galleries and antique stores, hotels and service establishments.

Scenic and walkable Georgetown provides a natural reprieve during the workday, whether it’s the historic C&O Canal, or the newly opened Georgetown Waterfront Park.
