You may think you know all about Dupont Circle, after all it is one of DC’s most vibrant neighborhoods. From its hip nightclubs and trendy boutiques to its brick rowhouses, this walkable neighborhood is certainly appealing. But there are a few things about Dupont Circle you may not know. More specifically, there are five little known facts, starting with what you’ll find underground.

Long since abandoned, an old trolley station and tunnels still exist under Dupont Circle. It was the only such station built underground, but it hasn’t been used since the early 1960s. Since that time, it’s been used as a fallout shelter and a short-lived food court. Most recently, plans call for converting the underground space into artistic

While courtyards and nearby parks may first come to mind when you think of DC’s green space, some of its condo buildings are trending “green” in an entirely new way. A number of buildings are going green literally from the top down.

In total, other figures suggest DC already counts more than three-million square feet of green roofs. To gain “green roof status” a building would have to have a permanent green area on either the building’s roof or on a mid-building ledge or

the presidential - 1026 16th st nw dc

the cairo - 1615 q st nw dc

A landmark of Dupont Circle for well more than a century now, there’s no doubt The Cairo building forever shaped the DC skyline. The building was first constructed in the late 1800s as the city’s very first residential skyscraper, so tall that after completion it led local leaders to fight for zoning laws and height restrictions in DC that still exist today.

Stretching a full 12-stories, the building sits on the National Register of Historic Places, inspired by grandiose structures found in other big US cities. Along with eliciting some controversy over its height in the beginning, the building also featured some memorable attributes, with large rooms, a phone in every apartment and the technological reliance on electricity over gaslights,
