Columbia Heights & Mount Pleasant
The true melting pot of D.C. with a vibrant retail scene, Columbia Heights has undergone a dramatic renaissance of development in recent years. People of all ages and interests intermingle and shop together, and to many, that diversity - not just the revitalized commercial space - is what gives the community its spark. Housing in Columbia Heights reflects a mix of options, from large, modern condo buildings and majestic four-story row houses to smaller, older multi-family structures and smaller row houses.
Quieter and more low key, nearby Mount Pleasant contains a mix of smaller restaurants, bodegas, and pubs, which are only a block away from quiet residential streets that feature stately porch-front row homes. Increasingly popular with young families who love the nearby National Zoo, the neighborhood is loved for its old growth tree canopies, and brick-lined sidewalks where residents love to walk and chat.
