Shaw Development

Shaw development, like in many parts of the District these days, is going full steam ahead. Here, Shaw development is especially welcome by residents who are very eager for revitalization in their community, which has been dilapidating since its heyday in the late 19th and 20th centuries.

The 7th Flats at Progression Place is among the newer apartment projects in the pipeline of Shaw development. This part of a mixed-use development of about 100,000 square feet, including about 205 apartments and 20,000 square feet of retail space.  These were supposedly going to be available this sometime this spring, but its website gives no indication the units are ready for tenants just yet.

Shaw is billed as a more afford able option to nearby Adams Morgan or even U Street, but these Progression Place apartments, being new Shaw development will likely be a bit more expensive than other rentals here.  Interested tenants need to submit a request for information for more details. As for retail, the shops in this Shaw development are actually nine restored historic row house fronts accompanied by a new 5,000-square-foot retail bay anchor.

This Shaw development also includes office space, which is slated to become the headquarters of the United Negro College Fund, with design flare that will bring a modernized flare to this historic area. It will be unusual to have a glass-faced structure amid the mainly residential buildings in Shaw.

For those who want to buy instead of rent in Shaw, development here includes many renovated historic row homes, though housing inventory here is on the decline. But Shaw development will include fresh condo options for buyers as well in the years ahead.

One condo project in the pipeline is the Blagden Alley Residences, which is an 87-unit condominium building at 9th and M Streets project residences set for delivery in 2014,  when we’ll hopefully see even more innovative plans for Shaw development.
