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.

A luxury Georgetown condo is back on the market, this one tied to a major name in the DC area. Ted Leonsis, owner of the Wizards and Washington Capitals, just listed his Wormley Row condo for $3.2 million.

For years known as East Village and West Village, or rather the area to the east of Wisconsin Avenue NW and the area to the west, the two villages combine to make up one of the hottest locations in the DC area.

Georgetown is known for its more affluent residents and gracious properties, with a reputation, reliable or not, that East Village is slightly more pronounced in that area. The village is home to several impressive estates, including Tudor Place, the elegant Evermay and the now regal museum and research library of Dumbarton Oaks.

In reality, though, you’ll find exquisite homes on both sides of the roadway and some big name residents, including

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.
