About Columbia Heights
Columbia Heights has experienced a tremendous amount of redevelopment over the past few years. In 2008 DC USA, a 546,000 square-foot retail complex, opened with major retailers such as Target, Best Buy, Bed Bath and Beyond and Washington Sports Club. Columbia Heights is home to many new popular restaurants, retail establishments, and the Columbia Heights Metro stop. The neighborhood offers many penthouses and luxury condominiums right in the middle of it all. Or if a historic townhome is what you’re after, the neighborhood offers a wide selection of townhouses on quieter streets surrounding the vibrant neighborhoods center.
Columbia Heights borders on Adams Morgan, Petworth, & Shaw. The Columbia Heights metro stop, located at the center of the neighborhood, makes living and visiting Columbia Heights a breeze. Columbia Heights has an eclectic variety of restaurants and retail that draw people into the neighborhood with its convenient shopping and savory dishes. On 11th Street, you’ll find a new emerging restaurant scene that offers a selection of brick oven pizzas, craft beer, and French pressed coffee. Anchored by the blocks that surround the DC USA Shops (Target, Washington Sports Club, Petco…), Columbia Heights is easily accessible via the Columbia Heights Metro and various bus lines.
