pacifica condos for saleThe Washington Post

Dupont Circle is an iconic and well-beloved neighborhood in Northwest Washington DC. With such popularity and so many people and businesses wanting to maintain a claim to their part of Dupont Circle, it is quite rare to find new condominiums cropping up there. J Street Companies, however, has managed to begin such an undertaking and it is called The Pacifica. The developer acquired what was 2122 - 2128 N Street NW in 2017 and construction is expected to be completed later this year.

Best Neighborhoods to Buy in DC 2019

Trinidad | Populated by long-time residents, college students, and young families and couples, Trinidad has been on the rise these past several years. Much of this surge is thanks to the renaissance of the H Street Corridor (aka Atlas District). Though the small neighborhood of Trinidad is almost totally residential, a short leisurely walk will get residents to heaps of great spots including the many offerings of H Street and NoMa, as well as the magnetic Union Market. In addition to Trinidad’s two recreation centers, residents looking to get away from commerce and the other trappings of city life benefit from being flanked to the east by the National Arboretum. Though brick rowhomes are the dominant architecture of Trinidad, the somewhat sudden spike

homeowner winter checklist

Protecting your home from the winter months is vital. A winter storm or other severe weather conditions can cause real damage to your property. That's why it's very important to prepare your home for the next 4-5 months of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures.

  1. Disconnect and drain all outside hoses, if possible, shut off outside water valves, to prevent hoses from breaking or even worse a busted spigot.

  2. Remove dead or damaged tree branches that would get weighed down with ice or snow and fall on your house - or your neighbor’s.

  3. During cold spells, keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate around pipes, specifically those in the kitchen and bathrooms.

  4. Double check downspouts and gutters for leaf build up

Not only is Arlington County prime for Amazon, boasting--perhaps for the first time ever--a 20% vacancy rate with regard to commercial real estate. JBG
