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. The Baldwin 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. The new street car line connects the site to Metro Rail at Union Station.
