With tree lined streets, single-family residences, a new town center and proximity to the Brookland/CUA Metrorail Station, the neighborhood of Brookland offers tremendous retail and restaurant opportunities close to the heart of the nation’s capital. In 2014, a large mixed-use development spread over five blocks that was finished. Despite the word “BROOKLAND” prominently painted on the main building, it’s technically in neighboring Edgewood. This area includes 27 artists’ studios on an “Arts Walk,” and a Potbelly Sandwich shop, &Pizza, Filter CoffeeHouse/Bike Rack (adjoining) and local chain Busboys & Poets along with a Barnes & Noble that contains a Starbucks. To date there are new projects slated for 2017.
