Shaw was mostly developed in the early 1900s with urban residential streets and bustling commercial districts, side by side. It was the home to cultural luminaries before the Harlem Renaissance and has held on to that proud heritage despite economic decline in the 1980s. Today’s Washington residents are experiencing a renaissance of their own here thanks to Shaw’s combination of historic and modern homes alongside revitalized retail, trendy restaurants, and pulsing nightlife.
Neighborhood living that’s central to the nightlife, plus a quick commute downtown.
Authentic, with a modern vitality.
Alley life at its best.
The neighborhood pride that equates to never wanting (or needing) to leave your neighborhood.
