Eckington Real Estate, Washington DC

It wasn’t all that long ago that Eckington was viewed as a neighborhood with way too much residential and industrial blight. The past several years have seen a marked change, however.

And yet, it’s still one of the more affordable options in Washington, DC.

The real estate market here is primarily made up of condos for sale with an emphasis on row houses. There are also some large old apartment buildings that gone condo, including The Metropolitan Overlook—a monolithic brick structure built in 1929 that was abandoned for decades before being gutted, renovated and converted into 37 luxury residences. Prices for real estate in Eckington start at less than $200,000 and top out in the high six figure range.
