Dempsey Uniform is a highly respected industry leader.
Popular American mythology holds that George Washington himself designed the District of Columbia, but that’s an oversimplification. A national capital was provided for in the U.S. Constitution, and although Washington was President at the time and approved every step of the District’s creation, the layout of the city is historically attributed to Pierre Charles L’Enfant. L’Enfant, a French-born city planner, reportedly followed suggestions by Thomas Jefferson that other great cities – like Amsterdam, Milan, and Paris – should inspire his design.
L’Enfant’s legacy often confuses tourists and newcomers, but it is in fact very deliberate: the District is divided into four quadrants that radiate out from the U.S. Capitol. Most addresses include a NW, SE, etc. North-South streets are numbered and East-West streets are lettered, like the famous K Street where many of the big lobbying firms have their offices. Diagonal streets have names, with many of the monikers including a state, like Pennsylvania Avenue, where the White House is located. For the most part, address numbers begin with the number of blocks away from the Capitol Building, but there are many exceptions.
L’Enfant was fired over a disagreement with commissioners appointed to oversee construction and was succeeded by his assistant, Andrew Ellicott, who made only the most minimal changes to L’Enfant’s designs. One of the features he envisioned was a grand avenue one mile long and 400 feet wide, today’s National Mall.
After the execution of L’Enfant’s grand vision, Washington suffered through a period of neglect and decline. After this, in 1901, the McMillan Plan – never formally approved by Congress – was nevertheless funded and implemented over a period of years. The Plan was named for the Senate Park Commission’s chairman, Senator James McMillan of Michigan. It provided for the construction of low-lying Neoclassical buildings to house museums and monuments along the National Mall. It also removed a railroad station that had been built on the Mall (now known as Union Station) and moved it north of the U.S. Capitol. The Lincoln Memorial was included in the original plan, as were the reflecting pools at each end of the Mall.
Rumor has it the District’s building height restriction prohibits construction of anything taller than the Capitol or the Washington Monument. Both of those measures are more generous than the actual specification: a building may be no greater than the width of the street where its address lies plus 20 feet. This restriction has been blamed for urban sprawl and the lack of adequate housing in the District, but it has preserved many attractive views – particularly from the Pilgrim Observation Gallery on the grounds of the National Cathedral. From here, visitors have an unobstructed, 360-degree view of the city.
While government and tourism comprise a large part of the District’s economy, business is currently booming. Bouncing back after the Great Recession, the regional economy is now in growth mode, with technology, construction, international relations, and hospitality driving most of the activity. The city offers a variety of financial incentives to attract and retain businesses including workforce development training, tax credits, affordable work space, and reductions in sales and income taxes. Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply is proud to provide uniform rentals and facility supplies to a diverse collection of government, retail, commercial, and industrial customers located in Washington D.C., including Bluejacket, DBGB Kitchen and Bar, and the National Democratic Club.
