More About Hill East Real Estate
While the neighborhood is primarily residential, Hill East is home to several unique attractions, including the fields at RFK, a sports complex that was part of the larger development of the former RFK stadium area; the Anacostia Community Boathouse, ideal for renting a kayak for river-side views of the Navy Yard; and the Congressional Cemetery, which features graves of many prominent DC politicos.
Hill East’s Reservation 13, a 67-acre plot of land and one of the largest undeveloped areas in the District today, is in the process of being developed into a mixed use complex. The project includes 353 apartments and 22,000 sf of commercial space earmarked for restaurants, shopping, and other retail outlets.
The neighborhood includes two Metro Stations — Potomac Avenue and Stadium Armory — serving the Blue, Orange, and Silver Lines. The Eastern Market Metro Station is a short walk to the west. Hill East is bounded by 14th and 19th Streets; Independence Avenue to the north and the Southeast Freeway to the south.
