The basis of this article is that there is a large market around for this building and the businesses within it. This building contains 19,000 square feet of shops and other businesses. Within this article, the market of that the location established is described. The article also mentions how the building was desired to be in this area because of how historic and vibrant this area is. Also the location is right next to the Shaw Metro station and that was an extremely critical part of the plan. With the metro stop being right there, people are more inclined to go straight to this building because of this accessibility.
I need to incorporate this article into my paper because it also includes what the planners of these buildings anticipated before they completed this project. There was a need for the metro stop because of how easy that allows people without cars to get to this area. The Progression Place truly resembles what the new Shaw will most likely look like in the future. Instead of buildings remaining in the area, there seems to be a new system coming into play. The Progression Place represents that and shows how new Shaw can become. For one building to carry so many buildings and such progress, there has to be more to come with this marketing plan showing all the highlights that this area has to offer.

The main problems that the 7th Flats wanted to solve or at least assist with are within this article. This article explains how the city of D.C. offers a lot to the people living in the community. The 7th Flats aim was to have business and pleasure take place in the same building. There are nice views of the area and it is a great hang out spot for friends. The developers believe that there is a perfect balance at the 7th Flats for all kinds of moods for whatever anyone has to do.
They believe that since there is: 24/7 concierge, shops and restaurants downstairs and a 24 hour fitness center, live will be easier for those that live there. The building was created to make live easier and more convenient.
The main reason why I wanted to incorporate this article into my paper is because there is a specific way that developers want the 7th Flats to be perceived and that is within this article. The 7th Flats is supposed to be looked at as a place where you can get everything that you want. The only problem with this is that not everyone in this community can afford to live there and spend money in all of the conveniently located stores. There is a rooftop pool and all types of benefits but if the people in this area cannot afford it, then it is a lost cause.
