On February 3, 2022, D.C. Policy Center Executive Director Yesim Sayin Taylor, was quoted by Axios DC:
It’s been a big week for name announcements in the District: The Washington Commanders (more on that later), Bezos Auditorium at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, and a new Bloomberg Trail.
And people have … thoughts.
Why it matters: This billion-dollar question lingers … is D.C. for sale?
These new names come as D.C.’s economy diversifies, shifting from focusing largely on government to incorporating tech and other industries.
D.C. Policy Center executive director Yesim Sayin Taylor tells Axios that because the pandemic pushed workers away from downtown and out of D.C., new businesses are more important now than ever.
“Business attraction will matter greatly,” she says regarding revitalizing downtown.
