Shaw

Shaw is experiencing an urban renaissance of unprecedented proportions thanks to its proximity to the downtown core, excellent transportation access and lively cultural and entertainment venues. Residents enjoy the ever-increasing dining and retail commercial conveniences, while local and national retailers like the rapidly increasing demographics. Once home to jazz legend Duke Ellington, the Shaw neighborhood still pulses with a rhythm felt by residents and visitors alike.Shaw is a mostly residential neighborhood of 19th century Victorian row houses. The architecture of these houses, Shaw’s central location, and the stability of D.C.’s housing market have transformed the neighborhood.
