Originally, the community was located along Pennsylvania Avenue. But the U.S. decided to redevelop that particular area in 1929, dubbing it the Federal Triangle Project. That meant displacing residents and forming a new Chinatown where it stands today, roughly bound by Massachusetts Avenue to the north, 6th Street along the eastern side, G Street to the south and 9th Street to the west.

Like other parts of the city, Chinatown went through a prolonged period of urban blight in the 1970’s and 1980’s, before a concerted revitalization push took hold. Today, it’s a vibrant mecca that blends commerce, locally owned businesses, cultural authenticity, and yes—some very cool places to live. 

The tides of progress have involved a certain sense of loss—many of the old historic buildings are gone now, replaced by new construction. That’s par for the course in neighboring communities as well. But there’s still quite a range of architecture, from older traditional influences to new glass and steel design.

From antique row houses along I Street NW and 6th Street NW, to new contemporary flats, there’s a bit of something for everyone. That includes the Residences at Gallery Place (a modern high-rise) and the intriguing Mather Studios—a Gothic Revival building circa 1917 that has been recreated as artist spaces and hip loft condos for sale.

And don’t forget all the incredible entertainment and attractions, including street vendors, artisans, bars, restaurants and the terrific Verizon Center—home to the NBA’s Washington Wizards. Chinatown residents are close to DC’s political corridors of power, and can also commute to anyway else via the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro Station.
