Congress Heights

Rich with history, the Congress Heights of today is a vibrant, growing neighborhood. First imagined as a streetcar stop during the early 1900s, the area grew substantially during World War II.

By the latter part of the mid-century, the neighborhood’s demographics changed and crime became more prevalent. Flash forward to more recent years, however, and this long-standing, middle-class neighborhood is beginning to attract new interest, thanks in part to some of its still undeveloped space.

More About Congress Heights

Known for its modest single-family homes and duplexes, you’ll find Victorians, bungalows and more in Congress Heights. The homes often come at a much more affordable price point, especially those in need of some upkeep around Alabama Avenue.

Homes closer to Mississippi Avenue often command higher prices, including some single-family homes near the park and some townhomes. There are also some newer developments to speak of in the neighborhood.

In fact, there are several new development projects going on in Congress Heights. It’s something that’s been a long time coming.

For years, local residents have gone without some of the nearby stores and amenities that other neighborhoods tend to have. New additions like the revitalized St Elizabeths East campus aim to turn that around.

The area now boasts a new sports and entertainment arena, plus some of the site’s historic buildings are being converted into multi-family residences and townhomes. Plans also call for some of the land to be turned into retail, restaurant and hotel space.

A new hospital should open within the next couple of years. A new mixed-use project is bringing in more restaurants, retail and office space to the neighborhood, as well.

The Congress Heights neighborhood is served by a Metro station and several bus lines. The neighborhood also boasts a local playground and the natural terrain and seclusion of Shepherd Parkway.
