logan circle - washington dc

Largely regarded as one of DC’s trendiest neighborhoods, the Logan Circle of today is far different than its past. This walkable neighborhood was mostly just farmland and wilderness prior to the mid-1800s.

The end of the 19th century, however, ushered in some Victorian-style homes that still stand along neighborhood streets today. By the early 20th century, Logan Circle had transformed itself once again, this time by taking on the moniker “Automobile Row”.

Logan Circle was best known at that time for its many car showrooms and garages, especially those lining 14th street. The neighborhood gained its current namesake in the early 1930s with a nod to a former Civil War commander with the last name of Logan.

Decades later, unrest in Logan Circle

This Capitol Hill property changed over in the late 1980s, but the trend has really started to take off in more recent years.

The Matrix - 1529 14th St NW DC

They are some of DC’s coolest condo buildings today, but all share a unique history. Many of them use used to be auto showrooms. While it may be hard to imagine these days, the neighborhood of Logan Circle once gained the moniker of “Automobile Row”, due to the many garages and showrooms that spanned 14th Street.

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.

Last year, in fact, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities announced that DC had more green roofs installed the previous year, at least in terms of square footage, than anywhere else. In 2017 the District counted more than one-million square feet of green rooftops.

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
