Sponsored: UrbanLand’s Neighborhoods To Watch in 2011

  • January 28, 2011

by UrbanTurf Sponsor

DC is a city that has seen several neighborhoods bloom in the past decade, and as 2011 gets started, there are plenty more that are rapidly getting their footing. Below, UrbanLand Company provides their take on the DC neighborhoods to watch in 2011.

LeDroit Park

U Street Corridor – Homes for sale in the U Street Corridor will likely see progressively higher pricing as the area continues to grow in popularity. With the former Atlantic Towers site in planning mode and the completion of larger projects 18 months out, small boutique condos like those in UrbanLand’s portfolio will be snapped up quickly. For UrbanLand properties currently available or up and coming in this neighborhood, click here.

LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale — These two DC neighborhoods are showpieces for Victorian architecture and the area’s main intersection of First Street and Rhode Island Avenue has slowly and thoughtfully transformed into a neighborhood gathering and shopping destination. Establishments like Big Bear Cafe, Windows Cafe and Market, and Rustik Tavern and Brick Oven Pizza have helped create a delightful, quiet destination for city residents. For UrbanLand properties currently available or up and coming in this neighborhood, click here.

Eckington — UrbanLand Company has brokered dozens of residential projects in Eckington over the years, and with its combination of Victorian architecture and industrial grit, it is still attracting DC’s hip, urban buyer. Buyers love that, for less money, they can live in Eckington and still walk to the shopping on U Street as well as the restaurant scene that has developed between the two neighborhoods. For UrbanLand properties currently available or up and coming in this neighborhood, click here.

H Street Corridor — This northeast neighborhood has already been embraced as DC’s new hip area by nightlife lovers and home buyers, and the massive infrastructure improvements and new streetcar will help complete its transformation. Tree-lined streets with homes steadily increasing in value run perpendicular to a 12-block stretch of H Street lined with music venues, bars and quality restaurants. For UrbanLand properties currently available or up and coming in this neighborhood, click here.

The Renee near H Street

Trinidad – This area can only be described as a bargain. With the ongoing development around H Street and the area around the New York Avenue Metro, Trinidad is an adjacent neighborhood that is sure to benefit. With one-bedrooms going for $150,000 or less and townhouses in the $200,000’s, this is a sleeper neighborhood for the first-time buyer. For UrbanLand properties currently available or up and coming in this neighborhood, click here.

The H Street, Benning Road and Bladensburg Road Interchange — The intersection of these three roads forms a hub connecting a large section of the city, and there exists opportunity in this area for the investment-minded buyer. The National Arboretum is just a few minutes away, and the area is one of the few places where you can buy a two-bedroom condo at a project like The Renee for $189,000 and be just a few blocks from the dining and nightlife scene of H Street.

Hill East – In DC, a Metro station has become a bulls-eye for developers, making the potential for the acres of land around the Stadium/Armory Metro in Hill East tremendous. Talk of this development alone has brought home buyers to this well-priced section of the city just to the east of Capitol Hill. For UrbanLand properties currently available or up and coming in this neighborhood, click here.
