This week's featured neighborhood is Columbia Heights, which is in the NW quadrant of Washington DC. Over the past few years, Columbia Heights has experienced a lively expansion of shopping & dining along with the addition of new luxury rentals and condominiums. This area continues to grow in popularity for first time home buyers as well as move-up buyers. It is a great location that is within close proximity to most anything you need, Metro(yellow/green lines) accessible, and offers easy commute to VA and MD. I also happen to call this great neighborhood home!
