Evolution of the Mount Vernon Area

You may have noticed that City Vista is sometimes described as being in Mount Vernon Square while other references are to Mount Vernon Triangle. The two communities are side-by-side, one being that which is adjacent the original public square known as Mount Vernon Square, while the three-sided area is a more recently coined term for a community and business improvement district bound by New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts Avenues. The triangle is immediately east of the square.

All this can get a little confusing, which is why many DC locals have begun referring to the overall area more simply as the Mount Vernon neighborhood. Still, visitors will sometimes ask where George Washington’s Mount Vernon mansion and plantation is—the answer being, across the Potomac River in the southern part of Alexandria. Will tourists never ever learn?

This Downtown DC community has gone through lots of changes over the years. While the street grids were part of the original planning of the nation’s capital, actual development was gradual, occurring throughout the 1800s and early 1900s. Many of the older buildings from that period were later razed, both in the name of commercial redevelopment, the construction of the I-395 and rebuilding after the Civil Rights riots. Nonetheless, the creation of historic districts has resulted in the preservation of a number of notable structures.

The creation of both community and business improvement districts helped lead the way for successful redevelopment of the Mount Vernon area, with new mixed-use communities like the L and the K at City Vista, CityCenterDC and other modern luxury complexes. These exist side-by-side with remaining structures from Washington’s formative days. The end result is an exciting mixture of old and new, from upscale shopping boutiques and trendy restaurants to older museums, theaters and embassies.
