DC USA is an 890,000-square-foot (83,000 m2) retail development in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington, D.C. A Washington City Paper poll named DC USA the "Best Designed Retail Space" of 2009.[1] The development is adjacent to the Columbia Heights station on the Yellow and Green Lines of the Washington Metro. It is also served by 10 bus routes and has a 1,000-space parking garage.

Anchored by Big Box retail stores typically associated with suburban developments, the complex is accessible to more than 36,000 residents within a 10-minute walk of the site. A total of 335,000 residents live within a 3-mile (4.8 km) radius.[2] The development has been designed to fit into its urban setting, with the buildings holding the street line to frame the sidewalks and continue the urban scale.

Target, one of the anchors, has expanded its urban store concept to numerous cities across the country.[3] In 2013 it opened a store in a redeveloped historic office building in the heart of Portland, Oregon.[4]
