Yet another Alexandria Water Taxi could soon be coming, this one projected to connect Old Town to The Wharf. Set to officially open in mid October, The Wharf development promises retail, entertainment, dining, residential and office space along the waterfront, and it’s hoped a new water taxi route will help generate even more interest in visiting the site.

The Potomac Riverboat Company wants to capitalize on the new destination with a direct water taxi between the two. To do so, the company had to make a proposal before city councilors recently, asking for exclusive service between Old Town and The Wharf.

The water taxi company already has three boats operating out of Alexandria, with routes to Nationals Park, Georgetown

A true northeast treasure, the National Arboretum continues to delight visitors and locals with an array of collections and green space dedicated to providing open space for both research and for aesthetic pleasure. For decades, the US National Arboretum has stood as a place of education and discovery in DC, a public garden that also acts as a plant research site.

The Arboretum is where researchers have been able to create new plants that now exist in gardens and even homes all over the country. With hundreds of new plants credited to the site, crews have carefully selected and bred the plants to improve upon color, drought resistance, look and many other favorable characteristics.

north district - cyrstal city

A rebranding project in Crystal City aims to transform a neighborhood, and possibly even land a big name company in the process. Developer JBG Smith just filed an application with the county for the North District, in hopes of creating 120,000 square feet of retail space, and that’s not all. Some published reports say JBG Smith is also hoping to attract Amazon to build its new company campus in the area.

Stretching from 15th Street to 18th Street, the area is bounded by Route 1 and Crystal Drive, close to the Crystal City Metro station. The project calls for a mix of new development and renovation to create the proposed new retail development. Some of that space will be reserved for Alamo Draft Cinema, while some reports suggest the developer also

17 solar condos kingman park

One of the area’s most affordable neighborhoods, Kingman Park is filled with brick row houses, a walk-able DC neighborhood close to downtown and to outdoor recreation. From its convenient proximity to Capitol Hill to its many trails and even a community garden, Kingman Park offers an eclectic mix of opportunities for its residents.

Once a mostly African American community, this family-friendly neighborhood is now more diverse, with young professionals and working class residents coming together as neighbors. It’s common to see residents meet up on front porches or work together to grow flowers and vegetables in the flourishing community garden.

With mostly well-maintained properties, much of the real estate within Kingman Park still consists of

Arlington real estate is booming, as more and more developers and homeowners choose to replace some of the area’s older homes with much larger and more modern designs. While a half-century ago the smaller, single-story homes popular in Arlington were more than adequate, these days many homebuyers are searching for two-story homes with even more square footage, and for many neighborhoods that means tearing down the old and starting from scratch.

It’s led to hundreds of homes being torn down and virtually just as many new homes going up on the now empty lots. The new homes do have to follow rules in terms of setbacks, lot coverage and height, but that’s not always enough to please everyone.

Some area residents have complained

georgetown real estate

From gondolas to cable cars, Georgetown leaders and residents have their eyes set on the future, and its one that could look very different than the Georgetown of today. Both are just a couple of concepts that have been floated by locals and officials, hoping to reenergize one of DC’s finest neighborhoods.

While still one of the most desirable areas, local leaders know that redevelopment projects in other nearby neighborhoods are drawing a lot of interest, and that for Georgetown to stay relevant it needs to stay ahead of the curve. Already, the city’s lost some notable retailers, boutiques and restaurants over the past several years, and that means a concerted effort to help not only help retain existing businesses, but drive new opportunities and

deanwood map

An up-and-coming DC neighborhood, prospective buyers can currently find real value in Deanwood, an area some deem one of the hottest neighborhoods in the nation. This predominately African American neighborhood enjoys a mix of available home styles, from colonials and craftsman-style homes to Victorian and prairie designs.
