More About West End Condos, Washington, DC

The West End neighborhood has evolved radically over the years. It got its name during Washington, DC s nascent planning stage as boundaries were being mapped out. This was before the integration of Georgetown into the federal city. The West End presented the western edges of the District in those days. The Old West End Historic District south of K Street extends into the current Foggy Bottom neighborhood. The 1970s brought a huge redevelopment and expansion effort known as New Town for the West End. Today, older rowhouses and other antique buildings in the area are often found in the southern fringes, with newer condominiums as well as retail and office buildings filling in the rest of the area.

The overall result is a fascinating blend of old and new, and a successful culmination of the government s revitalization efforts. No longer just a small residential community, the West End continues its forward-thinking evolution, with plenty of shopping, dining, entertainment, and more. The new West End Library occupies the lower floors of the Westlight building. Local restaurants include Ris, Imperfecto, The Saga, Blue Duck Tavern, Marcel s by Robert Wiedmaier, The Setting, Chef Geoff s West End, Jardenea, and many more. You can catch a movie at Landmark s West End Cinema, work out at Equinox, or attend a black tie gala at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in next-door Foggy Bottom.
