Living in Mount Vernon Triangle

People typically refer to the area around 555 Mass as the Mount Vernon Triangle. But that’s more of a modern day description for a triangular shaped historic and business improvement district adjacent to Mount Vernon Square. Together, the two communities meld into one another and are more generally known simply as Mount Vernon (which is altogether different from the Mount Vernon neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia that is home to George Washington’s original plantation).

The Mount Vernon area in Downtown DC has gone through significant changes since its origins as one of the first parts of the city to be included in Pierre L’Enfant’s original plan. The neighborhood developed gradually during the 19th and early 20th centuries, and went through major restructuring, and later went through major restructuring including the construction of the I-395 and the demolition and redevelopment of numerous old buildings, including those damaged during the Civil Rights riots.

Today, Mount Vernon offers a textbook lesson on successful modern urban redevelopment, with the preservation of notable buildings through its historic district status as well as a slew of modern structures including condominiums like 555 Mass and the massive CityCenterDC community which covers 10 acres of real estate where the old Convention Center once stood.

As mentioned above, there is no shortage to the number of trendy bars and restaurants in Mount Vernon, as well as fashionable retail boutiques and nearby theaters—old, new, live and film. Among these is Sidney Harman Hall, home to the Shakespeare Theatre Company. A few blocks further south is the National Mall with numerous famous national museums and landmarks. The White House itself is also within walking distance, as is the Capitol Building.

Indeed, 555 Mass references not only the condominium building but Massachusetts Avenue—one of the original grand boulevards that run in diagonal directions throughout the District, connecting at various public circles and squares and intersecting not only with each other but smaller north-south and east-west streets as well. It’s all part of Washington’s famous grid, a blueprint that has survived the tests of time since the founding of the city in 1790.

Residents at 555 Mass have access to secure parking, something that’s not always a given in a crowded city environment. Imagine the convenience of wheeling out onto Massachusetts Avenue and heading out for a commute, a meeting or anything else. But this is also a prime location for those who prefer reducing their carbon footprint. The Mt Vernon Square/7th Street-Convention Center Metro Station, Gallery Place-Chinatown Station and Judiciary Square Metro Station are each within a couple blocks distance. This is also an incredibly walkable neighborhood with a 97 Walk Score and 100 Transit Score.
