City Center is a massive, 10-acre urban development in Downtown DC that epitomizes the concept of “live, work and play.” Constructed at the former Washington Convention Center site in the Mount Vernon Triangle, the upscale community includes offices, shops, restaurants, hotels and two upscale condominium towers known as the Residences at City Center.
