Palisades Real Estate, Washington DC

The Palisades in Washington, DC is an affluent residential neighborhood that used to fly somewhat under the radar. Those days are gone—it’s now one of the District’s most sought-after real estate marketplaces. The locals don’t seem particularly worried though. As long as commercial developers don’t find a way to start throwing up new high-rise buildings, everything will be just fine.

The community runs north from Georgetown along the Potomac River, ending at the Potomac Heights neighborhood near the Maryland border. This was once rural farmland and the site of George Washington’s Powtawmack Company Canal. By the late 1800s the village had transitioned to a summer resort, featuring the International Athletic Park and Amusement Company, which included bicycle racing of all things. In June 1909, the Potomac Heights Land Company bought the park and started building homes for sale.
