Foggy Bottom Property Values
Foggy Bottom was once home of much of Washington, DC’s early industry and commerce. Positioned along the Potomac River directly between the Capitol and what was once the port of Georgetown, the neighborhood was an ideal location for early industrialists to conduct business. In the 18th Century, prior to its becoming part of the city of Washington, the area was known as the German immigrant town of Hamburgh. The neighborhood is said to owe its current name to the fog that would roll off the Potomac and settle in this relatively low and flat area along the river.
Modern day Foggy Bottom has come a long way from its blue collar roots. You’ll find some of the most expensive real estate in the entire city here, mostly in the form of townhouses and condominiums, but bargains can be found. Its one of the most transient neighborhoods in all of DC, and due to this prices seem to stay high.
