Columbia Heights, Brookland, the H Street Corridor and Anacostia are among a group of neighborhoods that a District of Columbia commission has identified as "transitioning" - or gentrifying - in a new report.

The report from the D.C. Tax Revision Commission, which was obtained and first published by the Washington Business Journal, identifies more than a dozen neighborhoods that fit a unique profile.

They're all areas, according to the commission, where median property value and gross income was below D.C.'s average before 2001 but climbed north of both figures just a decade later.

The report indicates that these neighborhoods saw dramatic changes in average age, income levels, property values and tax liabilities.

The neighborhoods named in the report include:

Anacostia Barry Farm Brentwood Brookland Chillum Columbia Heights Congress Heights Deanwood Eckington Fort Dupont Park Ledroit Park Lily Ponds Marshall Heights H Street NE Petworth Randle Heights Sixteenth Street Heights Trinidad
The Washington Business Journal's Michael Neibauer also points out that other hallmarks of transitioning neighborhoods, including condominium construction and a soaring rate of single tax filings, grew exponentially between 2001 and 2010.
