Why did you decide to locate your business to the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood?
Chris: At the time that we were searching for a place to relocate our business, I was really excited about the direction that this area was moving in. I live close to Capitol Riverfront, so I was familiar with the neighborhood and all of its development. I came to look at the building and liked the historic feel and uniqueness of it. For all of those reasons, we decided to locate here.
How would you describe Capitol Riverfront to friends and visitors?
Tim: Entertaining and family-friendly. I’m a huge fan of the gym space at VIDA in The Yards.
Chris: I’d describe the neighborhood as exciting first and foremost. The parks and open spaces, as well as the walkability, really make it a nice area to work in.
What is your favorite place in the neighborhood?
Chris: The Yards Park is great with its water features and adjacent restaurants. My family walks from our house over sometimes along the boardwalk to the park.
Tim: Nationals Park is great for entertainment. Canal Park is also fun in the winter with the ice rink. Since it seems like it stays cold forever in DC, the ice rink takes away the struggle!
Your favorite neighborhood event?
Tim: Nationals games have got to be my favorite.
Chris: I went to Diner en Blanc at Yards Park several years ago, and that still remains my favorite event in the neighborhood!
What is the most significant change you’ve seen in the neighborhood since you’ve worked here?
Chris: The amount of construction, cranes, and buildings being delivered.
Tim: The pedestrian traffic has grown a lot as well. With the amount of new homes and retail here, the number of people walking along the sidewalks has really increased.
