33 Affordable Homes on H Street

Insight, along with partners Rise Development and H Street Investment Corporation, purchased from the District of Columbia in March of 2017 the R.L. Christian Library property located at 1300 H Street, NE.  Insight plans to re-develop the long-vacant property into a mixed-use community that will include 33 affordable residential units and 5,600 square feet of ground-floor retail.

The H Street Corridor is considered one of DC’s commercial and creative hubs with a large entertainment district that retains a distinct neighborhood character.  1300 H will sit in the heart of the bustling H Street entertainment district directly across the street from the historic Atlas Performing Arts Center.  Over the past decade the area has experienced a resurgence of its visual and performing arts scene, hip bars, music venues, an array of independent retailers and a boom of high-end residences.

As part of this resurgence, the DC government recently invested $65 million in improvements on H Street including new streetlights, curbs, sidewalks, landscaping and street car lines.   We are honored to play an important part in the continued development of H Street, by introducing 33 affordable homes in the heart of this dynamic neighborhood.
