Revitalization in Eastern Columbia Heights, Washington D.C.
October 27, 2015
Columbia Heights is one of Washington DC’s most diverse neighborhoods; alive with activity and currently undergoing a renaissance-like transformation that includes an influx of new retailers, mainstream entertainment options, and exciting residential projects.
Those looking to be new residents of Columbia Heights have plenty of options that include single-family rowhomes, townhomes, condominiums and apartments. The project at 1020 Monroe was an early participant of the renaissance in 2011 with a four-level mixed use condominium building that currently houses the Coupe. Numerous other condominium projects have offered a wide range of housing options with several more to come. The Sherman Avenue revitalization will soon include two 3 bedroom townhouse condominium units nestled at 2825 Sherman Avenue, as well as Morton Street Mews, which will be 25 two and three level townhouses being constructed at Sherman and Morton, giving eastern Columbia Heights upscale housing options just one block away from the shops and restaurants lining 11th Street. Additionally, Redwood Ventures is currently offering its newest townhouse condominium units at 834 and 836 Lamont Street. Sharing the block with us will soon be 225 residential units in the site of the former Alsco Linens dry cleaning plant.
Designated a top 10 development project in 2010 by the Urban Land Institute, Columbia Heights continues to be a rapidly evolving neighborhood. With 642 thousand square feet of retail and restaurant space within just two blocks of 14th and Irving Streets and 34,000 residents within a ten minute walk of Columbia Heights metro station, now is the time to explore this bustling neighborhood and all it has to offer.
