More About the Mount Vernon Area
While some people would describe The Whitman as being in the Mount Vernon Triangle, it is more accurately located in the Mount Vernon Square. The confusion is understandable—the two neighborhoods are side-by-side. Mount Vernon Square is both the public square itself (which was included in Pierre L’Enfant’s original Washington, DC map) and a small area adjacent to it. The Mount Vernon Triangle is the area bordered by New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts Avenues. The triangle is also a community improvement district as well as a business improvement district.
The Mount Vernon area has gone through massive changes over the years. It was originally home to wooden row houses and smaller apartment buildings. However, the middle of the 20th century brought a first wave of redevelopment which meant razing a number of original structures and replacing them with International-style and contemporary-style apartment and office buildings. The end of the 1960s brought further change due to fires from civil right riots which caused extensive damage to the area.
A second round of redevelopment in the 1970s and 1980s was not entirely successful. In the early 2000s, city planners and government officials regrouped and began a new wholesale makeover of the area, geared toward revitalization and new luxury branding. Also, the Mount Vernon Square and Mount Vernon Triangle Historic Districts were created, preserving around 50 antique buildings that had somehow escaped intact to that point.
In addition to The Whitman, other upscale condominiums from the newest wave of Downtown development include City Vista, Madrigal Lofts, CityCenterDC, The Sonata, Ten Ten Mass, 555 Massachusetts Avenue and the Yale Steam Laundry—the latter being one of the few very old buildings in the immediate area that has survived and been successfully restored and transformed into condo use.
