Rendering of 1401 Florida Avenue NE.
It has been over a year since we did a deep dive into the residential developments on tap for the H Street Corridor, and during that time a number of new projects have been announced. In October 2014, we calculated that 1,076 units were in the works for the H Street Corridor and nearby blocks. Since then a few of those developments have delivered while others have been announced, adding another 400 units to last year’s total.
Below, we look at those developments from west to east. (Two developments below are in Trinidad, but we deemed them close enough to the corridor to include.)
