The Atlas District, also known as the H Street Corridor, is a burgeoning arts and entertainment district, located just east of Union Station in Washington D.C. Once a flourishing community, the area suffered economic setbacks after the riots of 1968 and began a resurgence in the late 1990s when a local restaurateur began to transform a three block area with various music venues and taverns.
The past few years have seen a huge population surge as economic development has exploded. Driven by a campaign around the revitalized Atlas Theater, now the Atlas Performing Arts Center is home to Capitol City Symphony. The Atlas District has everything to offer a homebuyer from Victorian townhouses and converted school buildings, to modern condos and luxury development projects. The Atlas District is a wonderful mix of old and new, with vintage shops and pet boutiques popping up next to the Southern fish joint thats been on the block for decades.
Forbes magazine just named Atlas one of America’s most hipster neighborhoods. Residents can now also walk to the brand new Union Market. If you want to be steps from a rock show, roast your own coffee beans, and be minutes from main commuting corridors, the Atlas District is where you should call home.
