DC USA features an architecturally distinguished design which is uniquely urban in scale, density and transparency. Most of the retailers have direct street-level access while several of the larger retailers, including Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and Best Buy are entered through at 65-foot high glass cylindrical atrium.
DC USA, which opened in February 2008, is the largest retail development in the District of Columbia. Located in the heart of Columbia Heights, the 890,000 square foot, $145 million retail complex is the cornerstone of the neighborhood's revitalization efforts. DC USA is a pedestrian-oriented retail complex located adjacent to the Columbia Heights Metro station. Anchored by the District's first Target - a two-level 180,000-square foot facility - the 85% occupied complex also includes 15,000 square feet of space for small minority-owned businesses and 1,000 below-grade parking spaces.
