Hill East Coming Alive With New Condo Developments
The Hill East is quickly becoming one of the most popular neighborhoods for buyers who want the amenities of living near Capitol Hill without the high price tag. Both new condo developments, The Brinkley and The Kingston, are conveniently located just 2 blocks from 2 different Metro stations. The Hill East neighborhood is bordered by 14th and 19th Streets SE, Independence Avenue to the north, Capitol Hill to the west, and the Southeast Freeway to the south. Residents can walk to shopping and dining on Capitol Hill. The newly named neighborhood southeast of Capitol Hill is enjoying a new resurgence of popularity thanks to new real estate developments coming to the area.
While Hill East is considered a transitional neighborhood, the affordability means that the up-and-coming area will bring in new residents and a desire for more businesses to cater to its residents. Within walking distance of both the Potomac Avenue and Stadium/Armory Metro Stations on the Blue and Orange lines, The Brinkley condo development at 321 18th Street, SE, is a recent conversion of a 10-unit apartment building into 10 new condos. Most units have private balconies.
