Why Golden Triangle

One of the World’s Premier Places to Experience

At the epicenter of the region, the Golden Triangle is the heart of Washington, DC’s central business district — bustling, vibrant, and bursting at the seams with innovation, culture, and commerce just steps away from the White House and BLM Plaza. Within these 44 blocks, there is 34 million square feet of office space and 1.7 million square feet of ground floor retail. Best-in-class public art and cultural events celebrate the international character of the neighborhood. With public realm projects and transportation improvements constantly underway, the landscape of the Golden Triangle continues to grow and evolve.

The Golden Triangle BID strives to enhance the neighborhood through long-term programming and beautification initiatives, such as the rain gardens at 19th and L Streets NW. In addition, day-to-day BID services like trash and recycling pickups and landscaping keep the Golden Triangle an attractive place to do business.
