H Street Corridor Real Estate, Washington DC
Often referred to as the Atlas District due to the restored Atlas Performing Arts Center, the vibrant H Street Corridor is regarded by Forbes as one of “American’s Top Hipster Neighborhoods.” A recent Washington Post article described the neighborhood’s rebirth as “rising from the ashes” while the New York Times raved about the community’s hip factor, and President Obama’s visits to Smith Commons for dinner.
There is some debate about the respective boundaries of Capitol Hill and H Street but generally speaking, the corridor is bordered by Florida Avenue to the north, Maryland Ave to the southeast, F Street NE to the south and Second Street NE to the west. What can’t be debated is the neighborhood’s economic revitalization and the seismic escalation of new construction—resulting in plenty of new homes for sale.

The H Street Corridor was one of Washington, DC’s earliest and busiest commercial districts, home to popular retailers like the first Sears Roebuck store in the District. The 1968 riots led to decades of urban blight. Interestingly, it was the arts community that spearheaded a resurgent drive with theaters and nightclubs reopening their doors. Commercial developers gladly hopped on the bandwagon and a new era of success began.
