With its eclectic energy and central Washington, DC location, the H Street Corridor is home to buzzworthy condos, fun bars, tasty restaurants, and boutique retailers.

From performing arts to the local farmers market, this is a small but vital historic neighborhood that continues to redefine its own journey.

The H Street Corridor often finds itself in the news, a former commercial center that has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the years. The aftermath of the pandemic brought more uncertainty to some businesses along the main strip, but the redevelopment of properties and a continued thirst for housing in the nation’s capital has helped swing the pendulum back in a positive direction. Notable condo buildings include the Pierce School Lofts, Pullman Place, the Maryland, and Constellation on H. Location also plays a key role, with the Anacostia River and its greenbelt to the east and the United States Capitol about 1.5 miles away to the southwest.

More About the H Street Corridor, Washington, DC

The Atlas Movie Theater was built in 1938, as one of the first cinemas in the federal city. These days, the restored and renovated Atlas Performing Arts Center, features film, dance, stage productions, and live music. It’s all part of the neighborhood’s rebirth, with many other notable businesses springing up, including a Whole Foods, a Starbucks, indie bakeries, and a diverse slew of restaurants.
