kingman park - washington dc

A true hidden jewel of DC, the Kingman Park neighborhood offers historic properties and an active group of local residents. Mostly comprised of 1920s-era rowhouses and condos, Kingman Park was once marketed as a mostly African American community, but over the years has become more diverse.

What hasn’t changed, though, is the continued effort of locals to stand up to developers over the years, helping to maintain some of the historic charm of the original neighborhood. A thriving community by the 1930s, Kingman Park was already home by then to hundreds of residences and some newly constructed schools.

Over the decades, though, developers eyed the location for even more, including things like a new Metro station, an expanded freeway, a theme park

m street georgetown

Georgetown’s popular M Street corridor is no longer the only option in town, as more and more foodies are starting to branch out, exploring the many new opportunities available in other DC area neighborhoods. While Georgetown boasted nearly four-dozen restaurants about a decade ago, some reports suggest that number’s now been cut in half.

While some blame rising retail rents in Georgetown as driving out some of the establishments, other DC area neighborhoods appear to be reaping the benefits of new attention. Places such as The Wharf, H Street, Logan Circle and Columbia Heights are all said to be drawing in new dining options, as are some newly emerging neighborhoods such as Brookland and Petworth.

New options for diners include Bloomingdale,

sotheby's auction house

The luxury condo market in DC is strong right now, and some credit that to an influx of international buyers. Real estate experts say they’ve seen a number of foreign buyers interested in the DC area as of late, especially in some of the higher end developments.

In fact, Washington DC most recently ranked as number four when it comes to foreign investment in US cities, behind only New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. Over the last year alone, foreign investors are said to have invested billions locally. Prime examples of this include the foreign partnership that purchased a DC area office building last year for roughly $1,200 per square foot, setting a new record for the area.
