Logan Circle Row Houses Are Highly Sought After
A historical area with all the modern conveniences, Logan Circle was originally called Iowa Circle. It was renamed in 1930 in honor of John Logan, a Civil War hero. This area was originally mapped out by iconic architect, Pierre L'Enfant and was home to many of the wealthy and powerful DC residents. Later, as the area attracted a number of car dealerships, it became known as "automobile row."
The area was hit hard by the riots in 1968 and fell off the map for quite some time. However, redevelopment has revived the area, returning Logan Circle to much of its former glory. In 2000, a Whole Foods opened on P Street NW, marking a big shift in the community's fortunes. As a result of the new traffic, older homes were redeveloped and the neighborhood became known for the historic row houses many call home today.
With many luxury condominiums and plenty of upscale retail moving in over the past decade, Logan Circle is now one of the hottest neighborhoods in DC. The area boasts a plethora of architectural styles, along with tony art galleries and high-end furniture stores. Some of the best restaurants in the city line the streets and the heart of Logan Circle includes yoga studios, organic food shops and the pampered pets of many Logan Circle residents.
