H Street, NE has steadily returned to rank as one of the DC’s most productive and innovative neighborhood commercial districts. A hip arts scene inclusive of quirky bars, eclectic restaurants, art galleries, and regional music destinations–most locally owned–continue to lead the way in the corridor’s renaissance. Anchored by Union Station–the region’s transportation center–the corridor offers easy access to the metropolitan area and the East Coast.A major element of the H Street Revival plan, adopted by the DC Government and developed and endorsed by the H Street community, is the promotion of live-above-work locations. Over the past few years, the policy objective has borne fruit, with the development of scores of owner-occupied and for-lease residential units on the second or third floors of H Street properties with ground-floor retail businesses.
