New Upscale Developments

Northeast Washington

As the second largest of Washington, DC’s four geographical quadrants, Northeast includes a large portion of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, as well as a number of other residential communities extending further to the northeast. You’ll find intriguing pockets when it comes to luxury real estate, but not to the same extent as this quadrant’s larger next-door neighbor, Northwest. The fact that the epicenter of the four quadrants is within the Capitol itself, means that parts of the Capitol Hill neighborhood are found in each of the quadrants.

More About Northeast Washington

You’ll find a sizeable variety of home styles in NE Washington, DC, ranging from old to new and modest to spectacular. There are both urban and suburban neighborhoods, each with their own unique flavors. Detached single-family homes, porch front rowhouses, older apartment buildings that have converted to boutique condominiums, and new upscale developments all contribute to the cornucopia of styles. It is also an area that has generally been trending upward in recent years, with competitively priced bargains and spiking property values competing for attention within the same real estate marketplace. Prices did slump during the latter stages of the pandemic, coinciding with a period of rising inflation. But that caveat is in keeping with the national scene, as well as much of DC.

Northeast, also referred to as NE or NE Washington, DC, has been regarded as an up and coming real estate scene in recent years. Some neighborhoods contained within this quadrant have had a longstanding reputation as blue collar havens. But as prices continued to skyrocket in perennially upscale enclaves such as Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and Kalorama in Northwest DC, more affordable neighborhoods to the east started to become more attractive.

The fresh interest goes hand-in-hand with activity by residential developers who look to renovated and upgrade existing homes or build new condos and townhouse communities. A sampling of NE neighborhoods that have been popular for a period of time or that are currently seeing a renaissance would include the previously mentioned portion of Capitol Hill, along with Brookland, Brentwood, Deanwood, Eckington, Ivy City, Near Northeast, NoMa, the H Street Corridor, and Trinidad.

The area associated with Northeast starts with landmarks like the United States Supreme Court, a portion of the U.S. Capitol building and offices, and part of Lower Senate Park, before extending north to Union Station, the hip H Street Corridor and its lively music and performance scene and continues north to Gallaudet University and the National Arboretum. Continuing even further north, you’ll come to some of the more suburban residential enclaves mentioned above. This fascinating blend of pubs, restaurants, performing venues, art galleries that transitions to leafy streets with delightful architectural gems, has become an increasingly popular target for home buyers. Whether you’re craving a Craftsman cottage or an industrial chic loft space, Northeast presents a lot of promise for home buyers.
