Vacant Lots & Addresses

Despite what many see as a crowded city, there are indeed thousands of vacant property lots in Washington. They are spread throughout the city but are especially prevalent in the lower income and more historic neighborhoods. In general vacant lots will not have an address in the Master Address Repository (MAR), unless:
  • A building with an address recently existed there. Example: 113 58TH STREET NE. (the address will have the STATUS of 'RETIRE').
  • A building will be built on this vacant lot in the near future. Example: 443 Woodcrest Drive SE.

The Integrated Tax System (ITS) does have addresses for many vacant lots in the city such as 1329 North Capitol Street NE.
