h street corridor - washington dc

With a countless array of places to go and things to do, the Atlas District is, quite simply, arts and entertainment galore. This busy nightlife district is packed with lively bars, live music venues, coffee shops and restaurants.

While it’s a bustling area today, the Atlas District has certainly seen its ups and downs over the years. Hit hard by rioting in the late 1960s, it’s taken decades to bring the neighborhood back. Efforts began to gain speed in the late 1990s when a local restaurant owner hatched a plan to transform the three-block area with music venues and bars.

More diverse than some other neighborhoods today, the Atlas District sits less than two miles from the National Mall. This makes it easy to explore some of DC’s hippest,

The stylish Constellation on H brings more than two-dozen luxury condos to the area around the H Street corridor. Sitting at 14th and H streets NE, the newer construction project takes up a triangular lot in a gateway intersection to the corridor.

The location makes it easy for residents to visit one of the dozens of area restaurants, bars and entertainment venues in the area. The property also sits within a short walk of the popular H Street Festival and the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

Seven|H - Washington, DC

Some sophisticated new condos are now selling in the H Street Corridor.  Seven|H is a new mid-rise property with ground level retail space topped by nearly two-dozen luxury condo units.

DC’s largest penthouse is back on the market. Former Washington Wizards player Dwight Howard recently listed his 10,000 square foot penthouse in the old Pierce School building for $2.475 million.

DC’s multifamily condo market is booming as developers aim to lure current renters with a surge of new for-sale options. Until recently developers had favored the rental market, but that trend could be changing.

In particular, some real estate experts say they’ve seen an uptick in condo demand since the Amazon HQ2 announcement. Some estimates predict around 1,700 new condo units will begin sales this year.

This includes nearly a dozen new condo developments with at least 50 units launching sales. That’s the most large-scale projects in a single year to hit the market in about a decade.

Many of the large-scale condo projects are coming to areas that have already experienced a wave of apartment construction, including NoMa and the Capitol

union station - washington dc

Maintaining a rich history in the DC area, Union Station continues to stand today as a grand example of the region’s past and its bright future. Still a major train station and transportation hub in DC, Union Station is also a destination.

Located near the Capitol Building, the station first opened to the public in the early 1900s, a joint project of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and the Pennsylvania Railroad. Flash forward several decades and the location began servicing at least tens of thousands of passengers a day, even more so during World War II.

As the years passed, though, the public began looking to other forms of transportation. With more and more people traveling by car or by plane, demand dropped for rail service.
