washington navy yard

It goes by many names, the Near Southeast, the Capitol Riverfront or even the ballpark neighborhood after Nationals Park, but to many who’ve grown up in the DC area, the site will forever be the Navy Yard neighborhood. Historic, yet brimming with new development, the area is alive with possibility, from new residential buildings to offices and retail space.

Found right along the Anacostia River, to the south of Capitol Hill, the Navy Yard gets its name, appropriately enough, from the old Navy ordnance plant and shipyard. Still home to naval operations, the Navy Yard played a part in defending the capital during the War of 1812 and the Civil War.

The earliest industrial neighborhood in Washington, the Navy Yard was eventually added to the

Noted by some as the DC area’s fastest growing neighborhood, the Capitol Riverfront is beginning to take shape, coming alive with new housing, retail and office space. Once known best as the Navy Yard, neighborhood redevelopment really began to kick off in the late 2000s with the opening of Nationals Park and is translating into additional development of mixed-used projects, including offices, apartments, restaurants and stores.

At build-out, it’s estimated that the Capitol Riverfront will offer 37 million square feet of residential, retail and office space, along with four parks. Currently the neighborhood offers a much smaller percentage of that, yet commands more affordable office rental rates than the downtown area.

Such big names as the

By the 1950s city planners came up with a somewhat controversial plan of urban renewal, razing many of the old buildings, eventually bringing in modern architecture including

nationals park - dc capitol riverfront neighborhood   

The Capitol Riverfront neighborhood in DC has become one of the hottest neighborhoods in the city.  It features one-and-a-half miles of prime riverfront property stretching north to the U.S. Capitol.  The vibrant, new mixed-use community and riverfront destination has made it!  Thanks to baseball, the area around the Washington Nationals ballpark is transforming and seeing a rise in real estate development.  The area has turned into a desirable, and thriving, neighborhood, since the Metrorail Green Line opened its Navy Yard Metro Station in the 1990s.  Ever since, the U.S. Navy and the Department of Transportation have moved its federal workers to new headquarters in the Navy Yard complex.  Retail and other services soon followed.
