Zoning Handbook

The purpose of the special purpose zones is to provide for single large sites that require a cohesive, self-contained set of regulations to guide site design, building height and bulk, land uses, or other aspects of development.

There are eight special purpose zones spread across the District, including the Southeast Federal Center, Union Station North, Hill East, Capitol Gateway, Saint Elizabeths East Campus, Reed-Cooke, Mixed-Use Uptown Arts, and Walter Reed.
