A 33-unit mixed-use community with 5,905 square feet of commercial space to be developed on H Street, NE, Washington, DC.
A boutique, mixed-use community in the heart of the thriving H Street NE corridor of Washington, DC.
Insight, along with partners Rise Development and H Street Investment Corporation, purchased from the District of Columbia in March of 2017 the R.L. Christian Library property located at 1300 H Street, NE. Insight is currently re-developing the long-vacant property into a mixed-use community that will include 33 residential units and 5,905 square feet of ground-floor retail. Demolition and construction began in September 2017.
The residential component of the Project is being developed using Low Income Housing Tax Credits. As a result, 100% of the Project's residential units will be operated as Affordable Housing.
The H Street Corridor is considered one of DC’s commercial and creative hubs with a large entertainment district that retains a distinct neighborhood character. 1300 H will sit in the heart of the bustling H Street entertainment district directly across the street from the historic Atlas Performing Arts Center. Over the past decade the area has experienced a resurgence of its visual and performing arts scene, hip bars, music venues, an array of independent retailers and a boom of high-end residences.
As part of this resurgence, the DC government recently invested $65 million in improvements on H Street including new streetlights, curbs, sidewalks, landscaping and street car lines. The new street car line stops in front of the Apollo and connects to Metro Rail at Union Station.
