rhode island avenue

One of the original streets planned out for the capital, Rhode Island Avenue is now well known as a commuting route, taking drivers from Prince George’s County and US Route 1 into the city. It’s also quickly emerging though as something else, thanks to new and proposed development in the area.

Starting in Downtown Washington in the west, the avenue takes drivers past the Cathedral of St. Matthew, the Apostle, intersects roads such as Massachusetts Avenue, and heads into the neighborhood of Logan Circle. It then goes through several mostly residential neighborhoods, like Brentwood and Shaw. Serviced by the Metro’s red and green lines at different points, Rhode Island Avenue eventually merges with Baltimore Avenue, continuing with US Highway 1.

Founded 150 years ago, Howard University has been part of the DC area for generations. As it continues its legacy as one of the nation’s top historically black colleges, the neighborhood around the campus is changing.

The historic Shaw neighborhood in central DC, located between Florida and New Jersey Avenues and 11th and M Streets, NW, was once an inner city DC neighborhood but times have changed.  Shaw is thriving, thanks to young professional urbanites that are attracted to its stylish residential condo buildings, and its destination for restaurants, trendy retail shops, and art spaces on the ground floors.  DC’s food, music and nightlife are attracting Millennials to this energized neighborhood.  The U Street Corridor, the area’s main thoroughfare, is seeing a bright resurgence due in large part to a walkable urban lifestyle that resonates with 20-and 30-somethings who want to live and play in Shaw, and be able to walk to their jobs or hop on the Metro.   Two

shaw neighborhood washington dc

Median sales prices for homes have escalated in the Shaw neighborhood by 17 percent in the last 12 months.  Shaw, located in the heart of DC in the northwest quadrant, has seen a spike in its average prices for condos, up from $586,000 to $743,000, a 27 percent growth.  The price of a 3-bedroom row home surged even higher---from $698,000 to $939,000, up 35 percent.  The Victorian architecture of the row houses, a very central location, and walking distance to a Metro Station (both the Shaw-Howard University and U Street on the Green Line), in addition to a booming DC real estate market are all contributing to Shaw’s popularity among newcomers to the area who are mostly young professionals.

It’s not just higher home prices in the Shaw residential area
