An old idea is making a comeback in the DC area, and reshaping some of its neighborhoods along the way. The old streetcars of yesteryear came back late last year, with some ambitious plans to extend the project out even more in the future.

The current route starts off behind Union Station, down H Street to Benning Road, ending at Langston Golf Course. The final stop of the line sits near the RFK Stadium parking lot. The streetcars already set the stage for some future redevelopment plans, and more could be coming.

With a long-standing reputation for housing numerous advocacy groups, lobbyists and think tanks, it’s quickly evident why K Street is sometimes referred to as ‘DC’s Corridor of Influence’. This major roadway may no longer be home to nearly all of the largest lobbying firms in the nation, but it nonetheless remains influential.

Carrying traffic from Mount Vernon Square to Whitehurst Freeway, this major east-west roadway is still a haven for young adults and professionals in DC. Still politically significant too, the K Street of today is filled with influential industry leaders and businesses.

Most interesting blog post on the Streets of Washington blog about the colorful past of the parcel in Mount Vernon Triangle where City Vista is now located.  This parcel was previously home to the District's first convention center.  The first auto show in Washington's history was held at this location in 1900.  In 1925, the second floor of this building was converted into 50 bowling alleys, thought to be one of the largest in the world at that time.  Other interesting uses included an international food market and housing the National Historical Wax Museum.  The old building had a date with the wrecking ball in 1985.

City Vista now proudly sits on this historic block bounded by K, L, 4th and 5th Streets.  The size and scope of City Vista, made possible
