H Street Corridor

H Street Corridor

A bustling enclave just blocks from the U.S. Capitol.

Welcome to H Street Corridor

From boom to bust to glorious renaissance.
The H Street Corridor was built in 1849, providing a home for the workforce that was building much of the city infrastructure we know today, including Union Station. It soon became a thriving commercial district when streetcars were introduced in the 1870s. Thanks to a resurgence of investment in the early 2000s, the neighborhood’s evolution continue today as developers push new retail and condominiums further eastward.
An eclectic community nestled near Capitol Hill & Union Market, known for its locally-owned spots, it's little surprise that the H Street Corridor has been recognized by national publications as a neighborhood in revival.

What to Expect

A bustling enclave just blocks from the U.S. Capitol.
The “Hopscotch Bridge” over the tracks of Union Station takes you away from the formality of Capitol Hill to a 1.5-mile stretch of colorfully diverse street life, where carefully restored row houses mingle with new luxury apartment buildings.

The Lifestyle

An eclectic haven of nightlife and theater.
The heart of H Street Corridor is brimming with restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and cultural attractions such as the newly revived Atlas Center for Performing Arts, which was originally built in 1939 as a 1,000-seat movie theater. Named a Great American Main Street by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the corridor’s independently owned shops and galleries are quickly being joined by large mixed-use development and refreshing retail.

Unexpected Appeal

The return of the streetcar.
Streetcar service returned to H Street in 2016, starting at Union Station and running the length of the corridor before turning down onto Benning Road toward the riverfront. It’s a true full circle from its earlier life when streetcars heralded H Street’s original boom.

The Market

No longer an “emerging” neighborhood.
As the corridor has evolved into a sought-after destination for shopping and nightlife, real estate prices have kept pace. Townhouses are the go-to first for buyers in this area. When they can be found, penthouse units in new condo buildings reach well over $1 million.

You'll Fall in Love With

Community, culture, nightlife, and the H Street Festival.
The annual H Street Festival has become one of the most highly attended celebrations in the city, stretching for 11 blocks with 14 stages and featuring a broad, culturally diverse array of music, fashion, arts, poetry readings, and children’s programs. It’s also one of six DC neighborhoods to host Art All Night, with pop-up galleries staging exhibits from 7 pm to 2 am. If that’s not enough to keep you awake, H Street is home to many staple live music venues like the Rock & Roll Hotel and Little Miss Whiskeys.
