The results of a recent survey on home design trends by the American Institute of Architects reads like a play book for recent DC new construction. It is refreshing to see several of the trends that we all appreciate about the DC market becoming more prevalent across the nation. Community design trends that are gaining in popularity include infill development, access to public transportation, mixed-use facilities, and dedicated open space.
Here in the District, it is easy to trace the development that followed the extension of Metro lines throughout the city. The vast swaths of vacant land created by the 1968 riots provided a critical mass of infill space that have allowed for neighborhood transforming development in the Columbia Heights and U…

With very few new construction units left in the popular Dupont - Logan - U Street Corridor, the District Condos will arrive to market at a very opportune time. This project helps to further meld the all the action on 14th near P Street and Church Street with the action of U Street. It is a good bet that we will see additional announcements along this…

Have you heard about the new mezzanine-level people watching perch at the P Street Whole Foods? Now you can sit high above the action and watch health-conscious mid-city-ites shake melons, squeeze oranges and occasionally sneak a grape or two. People watching doesn't get any better than this!
For those who like to people watch.....and who doesn't in DC...how about a DC condo with a prime-time people watching balcony? What could be better than checking out the scenery from your private balcony?
Much of the DC housing stock has outdoor balconies and space orientated away from the action towards the rear property. After much introspective thought, here are our picks for the best people watching balconies in the District:

Interesting post on Housing Complex titled Neighborhood-making in Midcity, about the efforts to brand the 14th and U Street corridors as Midcity. The neighborhood business association has landed a $200,000 grant from the city to further these efforts.
The Midcity neighborhood is bounded by 16th Street to tthe west, Florida Avenue to the north, 7th Street to the east and Rhode Island Ave to the south. Most of us know and view this area today as the Venn diagram (hopefully you paid attention during 8th grade geometry) where the Logan, Dupont and U Street neighborhoods come together.
With an office in the 1500 block of 14th Street and an obsessive-complusive fixation with analyzing our website users search keywords, I can unequivocally state that the…

What could be better for a busy Washingtonian than coming home from work and having a friendly place in the building to have an adult beverage and dinner? While everyone makes fun of Norm on Cheers.....there is something to be said for having a seat at the bar where everyone knows your name!
A trend that is gaining momemtum here in the District is to develop condo buildings with ground floor retail and dining options. While residential over retail won't work on the leafy streets of Kalorama, it certainly does in the the more urban neighborhoods of the District. Developments with this configuration are proving very popular with their residents.
While there are many other developments in the District with ground level dining, here are some…
