More About the West End, Washington, DC

The West End neighborhood got its name during the early days of Washington, DC, when the federal city was establishing its boundaries. At the time, the community represented the westernmost reaches Pierre L’Enfant’s original map—this before Georgetown became part of DC. The neighborhood was somewhat underdeveloped and very residential for much of its history, emerging in the 1970s as part of revitalization and expansion plan titled “New Town for the West End.” This ongoing project has successfully redrawn the community, melding new upscale development with older existing properties. The result is one of DC’s most desirable places to live.

West End’s neighbors include Dupont Circle to the northeast, the downtown Washington area to the east, Foggy Bottom to the south, and Georgetown to the west. A lovely greenbelt extends along the neighborhood’s northwestern and northern edge, including Rock Creek, Rose Park, Francis Field, Francis Dog Park, and the Francis Pool. Some of Washington’s favorite condominium developments are in the West End, such as 22 West, Westlight, 2501 M, Ritz-Carlton West End, and The Columbia Residences. The later is a lovely historic development with notable Italianate architecture that used to be well-known women’s hospital. Today, the revamped condo community includes an onsite Trader Joe’s.
