If Airbnb is to be believed, D.C. neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River “are now experiencing more visitors and seeing an important economic lift” thanks to its platform.

That’s from a new report on east-of-the-river bookings by the online home-rental service, which has operated in the District since 2009. “Guest arrivals” in Wards 7 and 8—the city sectors that lie east of the Anacostia River—grew 65 percent from June 1, 2017 to May 31, 2018, according to Airbnb.

East-of-the-river neighborhoods saw roughly 29,300 total guest arrivals—or unique trips—during that period. They recorded about 17,680 guest arrivals during the prior 12 months.

The most popular neighborhoods for Airbnb stays east of the Anacostia River were in Ward 8: Anacostia, Buena Vista, Shipley Terrace, and Fairlawn. These were followed by Benning Ridge, Marshall Heights, and River Terrace in Ward 7. Of all those neighborhoods, Buena Vista experienced the greatest year-over-year percentage growth in guest arrivals—230 percent, with 1,730 trips in the most recent 12-month period.

This week, Mayor Bowser announced plans for Lidl US to open its first store in Washington, DC at Skyland Town Center, an 18-acre site located in Ward 7 at the intersection of Good Hope Road, Naylor Road, and Alabama Avenue SE.

The Skyland Development Team secured the lease with Lidl US, a grocer that operates more than 65 stores across nine East Coast states. The store will be the first internationally recognized full-service supermarket to enter Wards 7 and 8 since 2007.

In January, the Mayor broke ground on Good Food Markets in the Bellevue community in Ward 8, making Lidl the second major announcement about bringing a new grocery store East of the River in the first six months of the Mayor’s second term.
