Pleasant Plains: Howard University And Much More



Private investment money is being poured into the Pleasant Plains neighborhood of Northwest DC with its proximity to Howard University as the neighborhood adds residential units, new restaurants, cafes, yogurt and coffee shops.  Businesses are taking advantage of the large daytime and evening populations.  Howard University has a student population of more than 10,000 and 5,000 Howard University Hospital staff.  Numerous retail opportunities and exciting plans combine to increase activity in and surrounding the area around the campus.

Historical homes and townhouses will provide residences for this educational, social and cultural heart of the community around Howard University.  Residents eagerly embrace the neighborhood’s history, and its proximity to downtown DC and 2 Metro Stations.  Streets are lined with row houses.  A planned town center is coming.

The Pleasant Plains neighborhood is largely occupied by Howard University.  Nearby neighborhoods are Columbia Heights, LeDroit Park and Shaw.  Pleasant Plains is located north of Florida Avenue and east of Sherman Avenue.  The dominant architecture style of Pleasant Plains features brick dormered Wardman-style row houses and Federal-style houses, including many with front porches that are 20 or so steps above street level.  Most homes are brick, with hardwood floors, a sunroom, a finished basement and parking in the rear.  The neighborhood has a special camaraderie where residents keep up their yards, talk across their lawns, and mingle with each other.  Residents find the location as ideal for someone who doesn’t own or want a car, since public transportation---both Metrorail and Metrobus---is plentiful.
