More About Ivy City
Ivy City Housing
Ivy City has seen its fortunes rise again with the redevelopment of the Hecht Warehouse as a mixed-use residential and commercial project which has sparked additional investment. The former warehouse has been re-sectioned into sleek, spacious apartments while preserving original brick and other unique architectural elements. Luxury units range from studios to three-bedroom units while 21 units are available at reduced income-adjusted rents. Residents enjoy views of the Capitol dome as well as a rooftop dog park and basement speak-easy. The Flats of Ivy City are another new condo development featuring modern 2-level residences.
Ivy City Entertainment
Additional specialty shops and entertainment venues have opened in response to the burgeoning interest in the neighborhood. In fact, Ivy City is developing a reputation as DC’s unofficial “distillery district”. Its many former warehouses are ideal locations for breweries and distilleries. Located within walking distance, the H Street Corridor is another draw with its thriving nightlife and plethora of dining options. As an up and coming neighborhood, Ivy City is fast earning the brand of a “more affordable 14th Street.”
