Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 4.44.21 PMBrightwood is perched on the Georgia Avenue artery between Shepherd Park and Petworth, with Rock Creek Park on its western border. This neighborhood of rowhouses and Art Deco-inspired dwellings includes Fort Stevens, the site of the only Civil War battle to take place within the District. Brightwood is on the cusp of major economic transformation. Area residents flock to the popular chains and ethnic eateries lining the Georgia Avenue corridor. Julia’s Empanadas, Haydee’s restaurant, and Chez Aunty Libe all demonstrate the demand for unique restaurant development. Larger scale development is also occurring near the Georgia Avenue and Missouri Avenue intersection with a new 106,000-square-foot Walmart (40,000 square feet dedicated to groceries), scheduled to open by the end of 2013. In addition, the Emory United Methodist Church has plans to redevelop their land, adjacent to Fort Stevens, into an 180,000 square foot mixed-use project with retail, office, residential uses as well as new church amenities. The Lofts at Brightwood, which converted a former Masonic Temple into 32 condominiums, and the $4.6 million renovation of the former Tewkesbury apartment building into 26 condominiums, provide chic urban housing and additional restaurant space in the area. Georgia Avenue is a designated Great Street by the District government and as funds become available existing small businesses and new businesses will have the opportunity to apply for up to $85,000 in reimbursable grants for the purpose of capital expenditures. – See more at:
