Is H St the next U St? You better believe it.

As many of you seen the articles about development on H St NE, this hot-spot of development shows more promise than most of the entertainment and shopping strips anywhere else in the city…with the exception of a few.
According to a Bisnow.com article, H St will prosper in more ways than one can imagine…
1-proximity to Union Station/Amtrak
2-proximity to Metro Rail
3-dense retail and shopping
4-upcoming trolley line in 2009
5-DEVELOPMENT (Landmark Lofts & Senate Square – Rentals)
6-DDOT “Great Streets” initiative will invest $30 Million in improvements
7-height restriction limits
On top of what going on at H St, with in several blocks are some of the cities largest developments, including Douglas Jemal’s Uline Skate Arena at 3rd & M St NE, the Marriot Hotel at New York and Florida Ave, the ATF Building, & Akridge’s proposed condos at Union Station.
This is one place I would keep my eye on over the next two years.
