We first reported on the McMansion epidemic in the DC area HERE. It seems as though this is an issue across the country as the square feet per person within houses increases. (Read this and this) However, couple this with the fact that people in the DC area are currently in mass exodus of the burbs and moving inward. Does that mean that soon we’ll have huge dormitories instead of apartments inside the beltway? I doubt it. But since DC has an extremely low rate of unemployment (5.7 all around and 4.8 in the closest Maryland burbs), I have a feeling that these changes have to do with other things… like under-the-table employment things. Or maybe they want to be close enough to steal from the Obama’s vegetable garden. What do you think?
