On September 5, 2019, D.C. Policy Center Education Policy Initiative Director Chelsea Coffin was interviewed by Newsy:
“I see it the most in housing developments that are ongoing in the pipeline. We really are seeing a lot more one- and two-bedroom units being built and not as much family housing.” Coffin said.
That couldn’t be more evident in the nation’s capital, where developers have added nearly 100 new apartment buildings since 2012. During the same time, the average value of single-family homes increased by almost $300,000.
