The capital of the United States, also known simply as "the District", is a territory located between Maryland and Virginia, fronting on the Potomac River. During the workweek, the population in the city rises to over a million from a weekend population of 670,000. Over 6 million people live in the Washington metropolitan area, many employed by international organizations, foreign embassies, defense contracting firms, and universities.
The two largest private employers in the Washington DC are health-care titans Medstar Health and INOVA Health. Attesting to the diversity of businesses in the city, Capital One, Mars, Lockheed Martin, and Sprint Nextel are all headquartered in the District.
The commercial real estate market in Washington DC has been stable for the last few years. The vacancy rate for all types of commercial real estate is around 10 percent. This has allowed new businesses to open while allowing larger businesses to expand. The city is known for having height restrictions on new construction. With the Height of Buildings Act, passed in 1899, the city ensured that no building could be taller than the Capitol dome. The act was later amended to limit the height of buildings even further, mandating that no building could rise more than twenty feet higher than the width of the street that it faces.
