Our Neighborhood: DC’s Shaw

liz-taylor-mural-shawFor years, DC’s Shaw neighborhood’s commercial action has been centered on nearby U St. Corridor, a local choice for good food and good fun. But developer JBG recently announced its tenants for two big Shaw developments: The Shay, at Ninth and U streets NW, and Atlantic Plumbing, the Morris Adjmi-designed building at Ninth and V streets NW. While retail will be a big component, restaurants and other gathering places including our very own Declaration will open in the new space as early as later this year.

The neighborhood is residential, with row houses and friendly, independent businesses. Students from nearby Howard University keep the area feeling young at heart, while great transportation links to DC’s downtown areas contribute to Shaw’s bustling atmosphere. Other Shaw attractions include the Lincoln Theater, Howard Theater, 9:30 Club, the Black Cat, Bohemian Caverns and more.

We are thrilled to be joining businesses old and new in one of DC’s most important, historic and lively neighborhoods.
