Columbia Heights-DC

Working with developers, the city government made a number of savvy decisions that led to the relatively rapid construction of a brand new neighborhood center. The massive undertaking resulted in several large residential buildings, a renovated Giant supermarket, the re-establishment of the historic Tivoli Theatre, a small mall called DC USA featuring the city’s only Target, and many other new retail spaces.

More About Columbia Heights

Columbia Heights lies to the north of Florida Avenue, which was once the boundary between the federal city and the suburbs, and sits between 16th Street and Georgia Avenue with Spring Road as the northern border. The neighborhood was one of several that were destroyed in the riots that swept across DC in 1968 following Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. Like most of those other communities, the area didn’t begin to come alive again until the late 1990s. In 1999, the Columbia Heights Metro station opened, but for several years after that, the area remained marked by vast empty lots. What seemed to be an endless construction project finally finished last year with the creation of a plaza at 14th Street and Park Road and an improved streetscape.
