seven corners - fairfax va

Inspired by work in Tysons Corner, another section of Fairfax County is slated for a makeover. Home to suburban DC’s first major shopping center, Seven Corners is now in line for an ambitious transformation.

Originally built in the 1950s, the old Seven Corners Shopping Center was, at the time, the region’s largest shopping mall. Fast forward to more recent years, and in place of vacant office space, parking lots and big-box stores, planners hope to

north ridge - alexandria va

Despite its growth over the years, North Ridge continues to hold on to a longstanding and delightful, small town feel. Officially part of northern Alexandria, North Ridge gains its namesake from its geographical location.

Situated on high ground, the mostly residential area can be traced back generations. It was integrated into Alexandria’s original city plan in the mid 1700s.

It was the addition of the Washington-Mt Vernon Electric Railway, however, that truly helped spur development in North Ridge, much as it did in several other communities in Alexandria. Since that time, the area has changed and developed, yet at the same time is still praised for its longtime residents and its friendly appeal.

A number of DC neighborhoods have had eyebrow raising names over the years. It’s likely older residents may recall such names as Swampoodle and Civic Betterment.

It’s some of the newer neighborhood names, however, that have been raising eyebrows for different reasons. It’s not particularly because of the uniqueness of the names, but sometimes it’s that they’re getting names from developers eager to help create the next trendy area.

Take for example the neighborhood of North End Shaw. A developer first started using the name about five years ago as a marketing term to distinguish the development and offer some sense of its location in the DC area.

Flash forward a few years and North End Shaw now boasts several new apartment
