rhode island avenue

One of the original streets planned out for the capital, Rhode Island Avenue is now well known as a commuting route, taking drivers from Prince George’s County and US Route 1 into the city. It’s also quickly emerging though as something else, thanks to new and proposed development in the area.

Starting in Downtown Washington in the west, the avenue takes drivers past the Cathedral of St. Matthew, the Apostle, intersects roads such as Massachusetts Avenue, and heads into the neighborhood of Logan Circle. It then goes through several mostly residential neighborhoods, like Brentwood and Shaw. Serviced by the Metro’s red and green lines at different points, Rhode Island Avenue eventually merges with Baltimore Avenue, continuing with US Highway 1.

One of the terms most commonly used by Realtors when marketing a DC Mid-city listing is "Close to Whole Foods." 

In our thinking there are two kinds of close to Whole Foods……one is the spring Sunday afternoon eight-block stroll from U Street……the other is the two over-loaded (reusable) bags of groceries on a cold and blistery January night close.

While Cooper Lewis and the Metropole get the gold star for being on the same block as the P Street Whole Foods, there are several other condo developments that qualify for the two over-loaded (reusable) bags of groceries on a cold and blistery January night close including:

  • 1441 Rhode Island
  • Berret School Lofts
  • Church Place
  • Citta 50
  • Cooper Lewis
  • Lofts 14
  • Lofts 14 Two
  • Logan

DC condos developed or renovated by Abdo Development usually elicit a wow from a potential buyer during a visit.  Abdo has left their mark across several DC neighborhoods including the Willison in Logan Circle, which they renovated in 2002.  Prior to the restoration, 1425 Rhode Island Ave was a circa 1928 apartment building known as the Chamberlin.  

To create desirable 21st century condos, Abdo reconfigured the interior layout of the Willison reducing the original 71 apartments to 23 luxury condos.  The restored condos feature large open floor plans ranging in size from 1,500 SF to 1,900 SF.  Front units at the Willison overlook tree-lined Rhode Island Avenue and rear units feature dramatic floor-to-ceiling walls of glass in the living room.  Willison

Logan Circle at the intersection of Rhode Island and Vermont Avenues and 13th and P Streets is the last surviving residential-only traffic circle in the original L'Enfant Plan.  The Victorian row houses that ring Logan Circle are among the most famous and photographed in the entire district.

The post-war economic downturn and white flight in the Logan Circle neighborhood stifled investment and stalled development that would have replaced Victorian-era row houses with denser developments.  As gentrification has consumed the Logan neighborhood, block after block of row houses have been brought back to life in a grand manner.

Row house architecture in Logan Circle includes Renaissance Revival, Second Empire, Richardson Romanesque and Romanesque Revival
