Columbia Heights Walking Tour

Coalition for Smarter Growth

Join us for a walking conversation in Columbia Heights, a key example of D.C.'s strategy for transit-oriented revitalization. The city-led revitalization effort for the neighborhood, which was severely damaged by riots following Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, includes 1.2 million square feet of new commercial and residential development, new streetscapes and civic amenities. During our walk, we will look at, and critique, the new development and public realm improvements. The tour will be guided by Otto Condon, Urban Design Principal with ZGF Architects LLP. ZGF was commissioned by the DC Office of Planning and D.C. Department of Transportation to design the public realm improvements.
