H Street Corridor at a Glance

The H Street Corridor is a neighborhood in Washington DC. It was built in 1849, providing a home for the workforce that was developing much of the city foundation we know today, including Union Station. It soon became a blooming district when streetcars were introduced in the 1870s. Thanks to a resurgence of financing in the early 2000s, the neighborhood’s growth continue today as developers chase extra retail and condominiums areas.

The core of H Street Corridor is flooded with restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and cultural venues such as the newly brightened Atlas Center for Performing Arts, originally built in 1939 used to be a 1,000-seat movie theater. Named a Great American Main Street by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the corridor’s autonomously owned shops and galleries are quickly joined by large mixed-use development and refreshing retail.
